Interaction between the fields of general relativity and differential geometry and between quantum mechanics and functional analysis during the first half of the early twentieth century has led us, today, into a new golden age of Mathematical Physics.
The Master's programme in Mathematical Physics investigates the intersection of Mathematics and Physics on the basis of noncommutative geometry, string theory, quantisation theory, operator algebras, quantum groups, critical phenomena, conformal field theory, integrable systems, Lie theory, algebraic geometry, applied analysis and other topics. Focus on Research: mathematician Eric Opdam
On exciting symmetries and the inaccessible mathematical reality. 'A girlfriend once said to me, "So, you spend the whole day thinking up exercises, and then you solve them yourself?" But that's not what mathematicians do with their lives.
Studying Mathematical Physics at the University of Amsterdam
The Master's programme in Mathematical Physics represents a unique combination of Mathematics and Physics, made possible by the coordination of two strong research institutes: the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics and the Institute for Theoretical Physics. Another defining component of the programme is its collaboration with the University of Utrecht and the Radboud University Nijmegen through its participation in the Geometry and Quantum Physics research cluster.
Students must hold a Bachelor's (or comparable) degree in Mathematics or Theoretical Physics, and have an excellent academic record. This Master's programme is designed as a regular study programme for Dutch students, but has been adapted to accommodate international students with a relevant Bachelor's degree or a suitable science major from a foreign university.
