  IUPAP: C18: Mathematical Physics in the New Millennium
Mathematics is the language of theoretical physics and, like other languages, it provides a means of organizing thought and expressing ideas in a precise consistent manner.
Mathematical physics is both interdisciplinary and in the mainstream of physics.
Many-body theory and statistical physics are attempts to describe the properties of extended matter, which might comprise as many as 1024 atoms per cubic centimetre and for which a detailed microscopic description is inconceivable.

 Mathematical physics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mathematical physics is the scientific discipline concerned with "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 term 'mathematical' physics is also sometimes used in a special sense, to distinguish research aimed at studying and solving problems inspired by physics within a mathematically rigorous framework.
Arguably, rigorous mathematical physics is closer to mathematics, and theoretical physics is closer to physics.

 Physics Help - Overview, History, Future, Links
Physics (from Greek from φυσικός (phusikos): natural, from φύσις (fysis): Nature) is the science of Nature in the broadest sense.
Physics is very closely related to the other natural sciences, particularly chemistry, the science of molecules and the chemical compounds that they form in bulk.
Below is an overview of the major subfields and concepts in physics, followed by a brief outline of the history of physics and its subfields.

 Harvard Physics Department Faculty - Arthur Jaffe
In the 1970's, Jaffe was instrumental in starting a series of summer schools for mathematical physics in Cargèse, Corsica, which inspired many future leaders in the field.
Jaffe was active in the 1970's in founding the International Association of Mathematical Physics and later served for 6 years as President of the Association.
At CMI, Jaffe brought mathematics sharply into public focus, drawing widespread attention to the importance of fundamental mathematical research, also shaping CMI to encourage young students to pursue mathematical careers, to create special research opportunities for outstanding mathematicians, to disseminate their work, and to recognize outstanding achievement in mathematics.

 mathematical Science & Physics/Engineering
Mathematics is one of the most fundamental sciences upon which many other academic disciplines are built.
The engineering physics program has been designed to help students find their particular strengths: our 3-2 dual degree options allow students to advance in a chosen specific field of engineering, while the 4-year bachelor of science degree opens the door to general engineering, graduate research in either physics or engineering, professional degrees, and many others.
The 4-year bachelor of arts degree in physics teaching (in collaboration with the education department) produces an almost guaranteed career in high school physics teaching, an area in which demand far exceeds supply.
