Mathematical physics

use of mathematics to solve physics problems

In applied mathematics, a branch of mathematics, mathematical physics refers to the knowledge made up of equations and ideas which scientists look to for assistance in modeling, describing, or solving problems in physics or related areas. These equations[1] and ideas are derived from areas of pure mathematics. The equations form a consistent structure.[2] An example of a so-called structure is a noncommutative space.
