The main aim of the Mathematical Physics (Math4Phys) from University Bourgogne Franche-Comté is to provide advanced lectures on the mathematical methods of modern theoretical physics in the framework of a mathematical curriculum.


 The Mathematical Physics group of the IMB laboratory in Dijon is a unique research team in France with a capacity to provide advanced lectures in mathematical problems of modern physics. It permits to create a scientific environment for a master program focused on the most important problems of modern Physics from the mathematical perspective.

The Mathematical Physics (Math4Phys) program from University Bourgogne Franche-Comté offer lecture courses for the students with background in mathematics or mathematical physics giving an introduction to the mathematical methods used for such branches of theoretical physics as quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, general relativity, gauge theories, string theory, etc. 

The coursework covers different fields of mathematics (algebra, geometry, analysis) and highlights their applications to the problems of modern theoretical physics. 

The students are integrated from the very beginning into the mathematical physics group of the IMB and have to prepare by the end of each year a master dissertation.

Future career prospects

The main aim of the master program is to provide sufficient training to start a PhD preparation.
