Vectors and conics
Attempts to answer problems in areas as diverse as science, technology and economics involve solving simultaneous linear equations. In this unit we look at some of the equations that represent points, lines and planes in mathematics. We explore concepts such as Euclidean space, vectors, dot products and conics.

Ocean Circulation and Climate: Observing and Modelling the Global Ocean
The oceans are a critical component of the climate system, storing roughly 1000 times as much heat, and 50 times as much carbon, as the atmosphere. In this talk, Professor David Marshall (21st Century Ocean Institute, University of Oxford) will discuss the challenges of predicting the evolution of a complex system that is grossly under-sampled and spans a bewildering range of scales in both space and time. These challenges will be illustrated through the important but over-sensationalised proble

Geoengineering the climate
Geoengineering the climate: Science, Governance and Uncertainty: The Royal Society Study - John Shepherd (NOCS) The climate change we are experiencing now is caused by an increase in greenhouse gases due to human activities, including burning fossil fuels, agriculture and deforestation. There is now widespread belief that a global warming of greater than 2C above pre-industrial levels would be dangerous and should therefore be avoided. However, despite growing concerns over climate change, gl

Anticipating Future Complexity: Are Systems Such as Cities Getting More Complex?
Cities are getting more complex as their residents acquire more and more ways in which they can interact with one another. New technologies enable individuals to repackage their time and space in countless different combinations, and the flexibility afforded by such innovations makes possible many new ways in which individuals might react to this complexity. Behavioural change is considerably greater in the modern city than the medieval. Delivered by Professor Mike Batty: Director, Centre for A

The Large Hadron Collider, the moon and some space scientists' heroes of science
In this physics and astronomy episode we chat to Dr Tara Shears just before the LHC was switched on in September 2008; catch up with two space scientists to find out about their heroes of science; and eavesdrop on a fascinating conversation between Dr Dave Rothery and Dr Mahesh Anand about the moon. The interviews are recorded by OU staff and the programme is hosted by Dr Mike Bullivant from the OU/BBC television series Rough Science.
