Physics Specifics of Fields in Physics

  1. Aug 18, 2011 #1
    The question has been asked many times; what fields are in physics. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find an answer, so here I am. I'm thinking about going into physics, specifically a form of theoretical physics, but I find myself unable to find more specifics on general fields (I also believe I missed several of the general fields during my breif research). I know I'm asking for a lot, but could someone please either post, or link me to a post that shows all the general fields of theoretical physics, along with the sub-fields and a general description of the field/what physicists in that field do?
