Mathematical Physics

The Mathematical Physics programme is being transformed and will therefore in the near future no longer be offered as an independent programme for new students, but as a specialisation in the Mathematics Master’s programme. If you want to start a Mathematical Physics like trajectory, please apply for the Mathematics Master’s programme, or apply for the new double Master's degree programme in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics


Interaction between the fields of general relativity and differential geometry, and between quantum mechanics and functional analysis during the first half of the early twentieth century has led us, today, into a new golden age of mathematical physics.

The Master's programme in Mathematical Physics examines the intersection of mathematics and physics on the basis of:

  • non-commutative geometry
  • string theory
  • quantisation theory
  • operator algebras
  • quantum groups
  • critical phenomena
  • conformal field theory
  • integrable systems
  • Lie theory
  • algebraic geometry
  • applied analysis

and other topics.
