    Programs Experimental physics, applied math, or both?

    Hey all, So I'm about to be a senior at a US school, and likely want to do grad school. I'm posting here because my interests are really sorta disparate and don't really share a theme. I like dynamics, stat mech, doing stuff on computers, and doing stuff with my hands.... Anyway, here's a...

    Admissions Do I have a strong enough profile for applied math grad school?

    Hi All, I just completed a degree in physics and (pure) math and I am planning on applying to grad school in the fall. I'm mostly interested in applying to physics graduate programs, but I was wondering if my background was strong enough to the following applied math programs: Stony Brook...

    Programs Should my second major to physics be programming or math?

    I’m planning on attending graduate school for physics. My interest is currently in cosmology and astrophysics, but I’m keeping an open mind. I’d like to be prepared in case I choose another field, or go into private sector instead of academia. I’ve decided I want to double major in my...

    Which Math Topic Should I choose for Research

    I am finishing up my undergraduate degree in Mathematics, for my last semester I need to choose a topic of research with a particular professor. I am interested in applied math, mostly mathematical physics but there are certain fields of math that may not seem like they relate to mathematical...

    Schools What is the best grad school for me? Applied math...

    Hey guys, So I'm an undergraduate, currently in junior year, majoring in mathematics with double minor in physics and computer science. I have only a 3.2 GPA, but I have extensive research experience. I received several grants for my work in operations research/mathematics, and presented at...

    Studying Applied math or pure math? + Stats

    Hi, I am wanting some advice on about studying applied math or pure math. I have finished my 2nd year at uni and will be starting my 3rd year soon and have been thinking about changing my major from pure to applied (I also major in statistics as well). After I graduate I would love to do...

    Programs From CS: a MSc, or another degree?

    Hey guys, So, I have been reading the forum for quite a time now. I am confused on what to do next in my academic life, and came here to ask your assistance. I'm from Brazil, so we have to consider that the University system here is a bit different. By the end of this year I'll graduate from...

    Applied Math or Theoretical Physics?

    Hello everyone, as those of you who have helped with my other threads know I'm currently a high school student and an aspiring physicist. I'd like to start out my post by saying that I completely understand that I am very early to be thinking this far ahead, especially when I haven't experienced...

    Scientific Computing vs Applied Math at UMN

    I'm graduating this year with a B.S in Computational Physics (the difference is the second semester upper division physics courses aren't required, and are replaced with a year of numerical analysis and a CS minor. But I took the 2nd semester physics back when I was a physics major anyways) and...

    Calculating magnitude of total force (N)

    1. Homework Statement You are given 3 charges (q1,q2,q3) q1 has a magnitude (charge) of 7, q2 has a magnitude (charge) of -5, q3 has a magnitude (charge) of 3. q1 has 2d co ordinates (3, 4), q2 has a 2d co ordinates (5, 9), q3 has a 2d co ordinates (7, 8). For q1, q2 and q3 calculate the...

    Magnitude, 2D co-ordinates and Coulomb's Law

    1. Homework Statement How do you calculate compute the the magnitude of the total force of three charges and also the angle it makes with the x-axis? Knowing the magnitude and also the 2d co ordinates of the charges. (x1,y1) (x2,y2) (x3,y3) I know for definite I use the below calculation but...
