I'm B.S. of

*General Physics*studying for M.S. of

*Mathematical Modeling*(1st year of 2). It cost huge amount of energy to gain necessary mathematical knowledge (Functional Analysis, PDEs classical+modern, Various lectures of Numerical Methods etc.)

I had to learn many things myself in last year because my Bachelor studies required only limited math knowledge and I spend

**huge**amount of my time in Lab with experiments during my B.studies so I hadn't any time for study Mathematics.

Now is hard to say what my specialization is, I consider myself as

*"Physicist doing math"*, but is like schism - sort of. My impression of reading posts is that in US, Canada and some other places, is possible to study only "pure" things (f.e. Pure Math) on Graduate level (PhD), when one doesn't want be an engineer. Am I right ?

I would like to do both in some way, I'm work so hard to gain (and grow) knowledge that I don't want to leave it. And I like both of them. (And I don't want to do double PhD)

Have you any suggestions which branch would be suitable for me ?

There are any Graduate programs in US or Canada that could possibly fit to me ?

Thanks for your advice
