Mathematical Physics
Mathematical physics is an interdisciplinary field between mathematics and physics, aimed at studying and solving problems inspired by physics within a mathematically rigorous framework.
Although mathematical physics and theoretical physics are related, these two fields have differences. Mathematical physics emphasizes the mathematical rigor found in mathematics while theoretical physics emphasizes the links to actual observations and experimental physics that often requires the theoretical physicists to use heuristic, intuitive, and approximate arguments.
