hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i'm wanting to start a degree next year in either physics or mathematical physics. The mathematical physics degree is a joint honours degree. I'm just wondering what is the difference between physics and mathematical physics? Is mathematical physics basically just another name for theoretical physics?
