The Department of Mathematics of the University of Burgundy (Dijon, France) offers a master’s degree in Mathematical Physics. The objectives of the two-year program in mathematical physics are, within a mathematics curriculum, to provide the students with knowledge of the advanced mathematical methods of modern theoretical physics.
The program develops mathematical methods used in a wide range of topics in theoretical physics, such as quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, general relativity, gauge theories, string theory, etc. The coursework will cover different fields of mathematics (algebra, geometry, analysis) and will highlight their applications to the problems of contemporary theoretical physics.
The student will be integrated from the very beginning into the mathematical physics group of the IMB (Institut de Mathematiques de Bourgogne), and are expected to write a master’s thesis during the second year.
All the lectures will be given in English.
A limited number of fellowships is available.
