Mathematics and physics are closely related. On the one hand, mathematics provides the methods for investigating certain problems in physics. On the other hand, increasingly complex physical theories, such as quantum mechanics or string theory, significantly affect the development of new mathematical theories. This international program in mathematical physics is interdisciplinary, allowing students to expand upon their math skills and work in a research team. Students can focus on either math or physics. This English-language program is offered jointly by the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Physics.
