Need URGENT help for my Physics career.Plz Help me to choose ?

Hi Naked scientist forum,

I am going to study in UK. still I am searching for good university.

I am going to complete my bachelor's degree in 2010 Match. I want to do M.sci in Physics
 
What is difference between Mathematical physics and Theoretical Physics ?
what is mathematics and theoretical physics course?

I want to study theoretical physics (I am good at math !).
I want to study all the fields in Physics except medical physics,geo-physics (I love some facts in it).
If I take

-Nuclear Physics I miss Astrophysics.
-If I take one I miss other ....
-If I take quantum. I miss cosmology and others.
I love astronomy too ????
 
I am ready to spend my whole life for physics like a soldier in a battle sacrifices his life.
I gave up every enjoyment in life. I don't need it.
I am going to be celibate. My only friend in life is Physics math and all science stuff.
I am intellectual ever since I was Kid. I never had friends.
never had good teacher other than Nature her self and great persons from history.
Love Nature and her laws.

so, Which course I need to do in physics ?

I love string theory too.
Quantum mechanics(esp. cats in it)  all ! Even Optics ... Light,heat,electricity and magnetism,modern Physics all.
My girl friend physics attracts me in every dimension ! math helps me to measure her beauty.

I am living today to satisfy my curiosity.
My desire to know the unknown
I love chemistry too..

I don't care Human relationships ! I feel like this world is alien world. it feels like I don't belong here..!
I don't care even if I am lonely. I gave up everything.


My work speaks What I can do ! 
I believe in my abilities.
I will never give up even if I fail.

What do I need to take ?
Which course in physics ?
I am thinking of theoretical physics guessing it would cover everything in physics.


I don't need any thing in life other than Physics math and science stuff.

sorry buddy i was a bit flippent

the truth is i have know idea but i hope the others can help you out

having said the astro could have alot to do with what happens on earth sounds cool as well

quantum love it right into energy and the movement of electrons i think

i it was me, quantum.

but i am ignorant

See - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematical_physics
Quote
Mathematical physics is the scientific discipline concerned with the interface of mathematics and physics. The Journal of Mathematical Physics defines it as: "the application of mathematics to problems in physics and the development of mathematical methods suitable for such applications and for the formulation of physical theories.”The American Mathematical Society places mathematical physics under the broad categories of partial differential equations and algebraic geometry with specific details given about what constitutes these two categories.

See - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theoretical_physics
Quote
Theoretical physics is a branch of physics which employs mathematical models and abstractions of physics in an attempt to explain natural phenomena. Its central core is mathematical physics, though other conceptual techniques are also used. The goal is to rationalize, explain and predict physical phenomena.

Being good at math is good for any branch of physics, not just theoretical physics

There is some pretty cool stuff in medical physics. Perhaps you shouldn’t rule it out too fast. E.g. one of the ways they treat cancer nowadays is to use a beam of protons. So if you worked in medical physics you could work with a particle accelerator at a hospital and actually be doing nuclear physics.

Why?

I think everyone feels that way to some extent. It’s quite difficult, if not impossible, to be fluent in all branches of physics.

I recommend that you wait and see how things go. You’ll have to start by taking the basic courses in math and physics. I.e. Calculus 101, 102, 103, Basic Physics 101, 102, 103 etc. Then you’ll get into more specific courses such as quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, thermodynamics etc. At the Bachelor level you really wouldn’t be choosing things like whether to be a theoretical or mathematical physicist or not. That kind of thing requires advanced courses such as the ones you’ll get into in graduate school. You wouldn’t even touch on string theory as an undergraduate.  The choices you’re asking about will need to be done when you’re in graduate school. By that time you’ll be able to make the choices you’re asking about much more easily.

That’s not a good thing. You need to interact with people when you working. The better you can interact with people the better you can do your job.

well,
Human relations ?
I don't want.
I failed in society.I don't like people with Blah blah,blah ??
all avoid me.
I am lonely in my classroom
I live where there is no value for me or science.
they give value for sports,games,enjoy with girls,movies all the stuff.
I am unique.so,I gave up normal life.

What a monologue...

Ask yourself what you would like to accomplish in your life after your studies, which will be a much longer period of time than your time at university. Then look at which courses you'll need the most to accomplish that goal, and you have your decision made.

man you really making stupid here.
Nature doesn't mean that only biology!
Physics too comes under nature.
Why I have to explain you what nature is ?
You only think that life is nature.
No..
Physics is nothing but study of physical properties of nature.
like Heat light work sound wave everything.
the word nature for is the not limited to earth or life it is related to bigbang !
I considered my self to creator of universe.
I mean to say as a god !

Nature as a god using set of laws.
You like biology so you study.
You got good responsibility. I got big one in Physics.
I consider Nature as big scale !
Equal to GOD.
Equal to Mathematician !
Equal to Physicist ! whose IQ is infinite !

Dude I really mean to say physical laws of nature.

Ok I want to unlock secrets of creation form bigbang .
do you call this biology ?
it includes physics,math and lot stuff for creation !
of planets stars atoms !
It's Nature !!!
Nature is not life nature is something more than your wildest imagination !

Now now. No need to be rude - I'm sure he just misunderstood what you meant to say. The responsibility is on you to make sure your meaning is clear - nature could refer to any aspect of nature, not just physics and maths.

try to understand I am making rude statements .
Trying to explain. "Don't be stupid" is rude ?

Kiran, from what you have said working in Academia (a University physics department) would be ultimate goal. I would see a Masters degree as a stepping stone. If you impress the University you could probably continue indefinitely doing research in any number of fields. It therefore probably does not matter which field you do your Masters in, you could probably switch at some point. However, you have to impress people with your ability. If you are very, very good technically then it should be OK but if you are not excellent, and there will be plenty of competition, you may still progress by having other skills. Research positions at Univerities often come with teaching responsibilities of some sort so you may need to polish your relationship skills more than you think.

You are probably aware you are never going to get rich with this career path :-) Physics is interesting but rarely lucrative.

does it full fill my daily needs ? first thing is does it fill my belly ?
do I get good job other than lecturer in physics ?
I don't want to become lecturer !
I can be excellent if university is really good.

Kiran, there are not many well paid jobs doing interesting research in Physics. If you want to earn reasonable money you end up in a field like electronics or semiconductors (like me). From what you said you are more interested in the "sharp end" of physics research. There are jobs at places like CERN but the pay is not great and the competition high. Plus the majority of the work there will involve the engineering rather than research.

You reckon you can be excellent if the University is good so you need to get into a good University. I'm afraid to say that not all the Universities in the UK are of the same standard and there is huge competition for the good ones - even for studying Physics.

Calculus 101, 102, 103, Basic Physics 101, 102, 103 etc.
What is this ?
Those are courses. E.g. the calculus sequence is broken up into three courses which are often called, in order, "Calculus 101", "Calculus 102," "Calculus 103". Basic physics is the same way.

So you're going to complete your bachelor's degree in 2010? If you don't know what you want to focus on by now then nobody can tell you that. Only you can do that.
