# Mathematical Physics

Mathematical Physics applies modern theories from mathematics and physics to physical, technical, medical and economic problems. Important areas of research include the theoretical understanding of the structure of the atomic nucleus and of nanometre systems, which will be the basis for the electronics and quantum computers of the future. Other areas of application are in economics (the flow of capital) and in medicine (for example the dynamics of the heart), as well as thermal analysis of the ground for heat storage and spent nuclear fuel storage.
