**Activities**

Training in Mathematical Physics prepares a students to eventually move into a career in almost any of the areas in which technical, physical and Mathematical expertise is at present in high demand.

Indeed, apart from preparing one for a career in research and teaching in mathematical physics itself, a solid background in this field can be a springboard for entering into the domains of computer science, information processing technology, financial mathematics or even investment and management science, and more generally mathematical modelling of just any physical, biological, epidemiological and human process.

For example, much of modern information processing technology, based on wavelet analysis, is developing as a sub discipline of mathematical physics.

A sound training in mathematical physics not only gives students a broad education in problem solving, it also equips them with a repertoire of mathematical models of the physical world, which opens up a broad spectrum of applications to many other disciplines, where mathematical modelling of real life situations has become increasingly important.
