Mathematical physics

  1. Jan 21, 2005 #1
    I'm thinking of studying mathematical physics at my local university. But I'm no sure what kind of a job I could get with such a degree,. I'm interested mostly in scientific reasrch and stuf like that. I'm not realy a major fan of industial reassrsh. So could somen pleas tell me what a mathematical physicist realy does :confused: . I tried to get some info at the university but they didn't realy gave me any.

    A mathematical physicst a.k.a. a theoretical physicist a.k.a. a theorist is an improved version of LAB RAT (a.k.a. experimentalist) ...HE IS A PAPER AND LAPTOP RAT.He teaches theoretical physics courses and in the remainder of time he reads and writes articles in his area of expertise...Not really dull,my view...
