Mathematical physics, or theoretical physics, is the study of the fundamental laws of nature that govern our existence; from the interactions of quarks and gluons through the properties of metals and the aerodynamics of flight, to the evolution of stars and galaxies.

  • Many of the technologies we now take for granted have their origins in fundamental physics research, including PET scanners, lasers, Wi-Fi and the world wide web.
  • Mathematical methods developed in mathematical physics have found their way to a wide range of applications, from financial markets and computer science to genetics and brain studies.
  • The study of Mathematical Physics at Maynooth University has a long and distinguished tradition, of over 200 years. Modern theoretical physics and applied mathematics are exciting and dynamic and that excitement is reflected in the research projects which are pursued in the Department.
  • As well as being introduced to the major ideas and developments in theoretical physics and applied mathematics, you will be equipped with the tools to meet current and future developments in science, engineering, finance and other technologies of the future.
