I was wondering if anyone here is a mathematical physicist. The field sounds interesting, and perhaps I might head towards it in college. However, I can find virtually no information on it, besides the things that it studies (Quantum Field Theory, Statistical Mechanics etc.) If anyone here (especially if you are one) can answer these questions, it would help. 1)Where do you work? I don't really know where a mathematical physicist would work. Perhaps at a college as a professor? 2)Do you enjoy your work? What appeals to you most about this field? I for one, think being a mathematical physicist would be intriguing because they are able to explain physical systems with rather beautiful formulae. 3)Is being a mathematical physicist related to being a theoretical physicist? and finally of course… 4)How much dough do you make? I hear lots of physicists are filthy rich, and perhaps the same applies to mathematical physicists. By the way, if any of you have seen me around the Homework help forum, you will know I am pretty bad at math. However, I am working to get better because it is actually becoming interesting. I used to think it was some abstract concept, but it can explain the real world in such a beautiful and (sometimes) simple way! Anyways, thanks in advance.
