i'd probably assume CS mathematics, its probably more applicable

As for job opportunities, if you want to work in industry then I think it is easier to get a job with a regular CS degree than it is with a CS mathematics degree. I do think the CS mathematics will compliment your physics degree better though because of all the applied math courses you probably have to take.

in a good compmath programme you'd be forced to take 2 ODE/PDE(theoretical) plus the numerical methods that coincide with the 2 as well as complex and FFT(if you have a course like that usually found in elec/comp eng)and maybe a compphys course ...as for pure theory the only few added courses ontop of that would be prolly be diffgeom,anal/class. mechI&II(if your school offers 2), relativity(some schools put htis under math), algebras, some course that teaches calculus of variations...and perhaps a dynamical systems courses...and the analysis classes may be useful and maybe topology

Your physics programme should already have most of those courses incorporated

the exceptions would be the numericals, dynamical systems, diffgeom, topology, analysis,algebras(total of maybe 4-5 courses depending on which ones you may want to take). I doubt you'd have any use for logic,language theory,computibility,set theory, discrete math.

number theory and stats classes.
