Mathematical Physics is the discipline of solving physically motivated problems in a mathematically rigorous way. As such it has become an extensive research area at the intersection of Mathematics and Physics with a long tradition in Vienna as is evidenced by such illustrious names like Boltzmann, Schrödinger, and Thirring. Many of the currently studied questions in Theoretical Physics require high-level mathematical skills. In order to be prepared for research in this area one therefore needs to study a variety of mathematical methods and acquire a strong intuition for the relevant physical theories and questions.

Offering a program that ensures this education is the aim of the Master Class Mathematical Physics at the University of Vienna.

Important: The MCMP is an initiative within the master programs "Mathematics" and "Physics" at the University of Vienna. It is not a master program itself. In order to join the MCMP, you need to be enrolled in the master program "Mathematics" or "Physics" at the University of Vienna.
