Mathematical Physics

Mathematics and physics have been closely linked since the earliest of times. Today's physics requires sophisticated mathematical ideas and, in turn, feeds back new ideas and physical intuition to long-standing mathematical problems. The School of Mathematical Sciences has an active group of researchers in mathematical physics with an international reputation. The Differential Geometry Seminar meets regularly with talks by local researchers and visitors. The Institute for Geometry and its Applications organises international conferences and workshops .
