Can anyone give me a description? Maybe I should ask some questions too. Do most theoretical physicists work alone or with colleagues? Do most theoretical physicists work at home? What do you need while doing your work? Just pen and paper? Or do most need books to refer to? I basically want to be able to work where ever I go. And if there are any victorians here, what's a good university for physics? Right not I have monash uni in mind because they got the 3 different science courses, even though I won't make it into the one that needs 99.3 ENTER score.
