Program description

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

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 programme 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. The UvA works closely with the VU University Amsterdam in most Master's tracks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. As a result of this cooperation, students benefit from the combined expertise of two universities as well as their existing networks and collaborative projects such as those in the particle accelerator laboratory of the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN in Geneva, the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics (Nikhef) and the FOM-Institutes for Plasma Physics Rijnhuizen and for Atomic and Molecular Physics (Amolf).
