Mathematics with Theoretical Physics

Acquire a deep insight into modern theories of nature using powerful mathematical techniques. This degree will provide you with the necessary mathematical language to be able to describe, analyse and predict natural phenomena. Final year modules include classical and quantum mechanics, electrodynamics and relativity, fluid dynamics and partial differential equations. A particular highlight of the degree is the choice of project modules to explore aspects of modern physics in depth. * Benefit from outstanding teaching: in the 2017 National Student Survey 100 per cent of our final year Mathematics students said they were satisfied with the quality of the degree and 98% agreed that 'Staff are good at explaining things’. * Study the foundation of modern theoretical physics in modules such as classical and quantum mechanics and electrodynamics and relativity. * Carry out a project in theoretical physics on topics such as quantum computers, black holes, teleportation and the quark model, supported by a leading academic. * Be inspired by a large group of theoretical physicists who have strong research connections across the globe including with CERN and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Two of our lecturers are Associate CERN staff members, another leads the Lattice QCD/BSM group at CERN, two are members of the UK’s Central Laser Facility user group and one is a theory consultant to the European Light Infrastructure project. * Pure and applied mathematics, modules in probability and options in statistics: get to grips with the foundations of modern mathematics.
