athoverflow is an interactive website for mathematicians to ask and answer questions. John Baez, writing in the March 2010 edition of Notices of the American Mathematical Society states, “Math Overflow” has become a universal clearinghouse for math questions. There are many, many reasons why mathematics is of great value in consciousness science, not the least of which is to aid in finding paths through the data deluge. More and more neuroscientists utilize maths (to use the British expression) not out of physics envy but because their research would not be possible otherwise. Many scientists have entered neuroscience with degrees in mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, and the like.
Devoted to professional mathematicians, love of mathematics and a genuine question are the only real requirements to use and enjoy this marvelous site.
