About us

OILER believes that spreading the culture of logic and mathematics is one of the key factors to create a conscious society. In this perspective, we will highlight the recreational dimension, the history and the applications of mathematics to everyday life, encouraging discussion whenever it is possible. Our aim is to hinder the narrow view according to which mathematics cannot admit opinions nor changes. Even from an educational point of view, unfortunately there is a real risk that mathematics can be considered as something unchanged and unchangeable, and that to each problem corresponds just one solution reachable through one procedure only. OILER targets a wider audience, trying to include all age groups, experts and non-experts.
