Master in Mathematical Physics
The Master programme in Mathematical Physics is a joint programme of the Department of Mathematics and the
Department of Physics at Hamburg University.
It is complemented by contributions from leading scientists
of the Theoretical Physics Group at
DESY, one of the world's leading centres for the
investigation of the structure of matter.
The Master Programme in Mathematical Physics is a research oriented programme geared towards fundamental research at the interface of mathematics and physics. Its
participants acquire familiarity with the fundamental concepts of modern theoretical physics as well as
proficiency in pure mathematics. Ideally, graduates of the programme are able to understand current research in theoretical physics as well as to work actively with advanced mathematical concepts and structures.
The programme is embedded into an active research environment involving broad expertise
and numerous topics from mathematical physics. The activities of the participating research groups are complemented by a number of collaborative activities and institutions. In particular, this includes the following research and training clusters:
These structures offer joint courses and seminars on a wide variety of topics in mathematical physics that are open to participants of the programme. The close collaboration between the research groups also provides a wide variety of topics for research projects and master theses.
Detailed information on the research environment, the programme and the choice of courses are given on our About us, Degree Structure and Courses page.
