# Mathematical physics

In applied mathematics, a branch of mathematics, **mathematical physics** refers to the knowledge made up of equations and ideas which scientists look to for assistance in modeling, describing, or solving problems in physics or related areas. These equations^{[1]} and ideas are derived from areas of pure mathematics. The equations form a consistent structure.^{[2]} An example of a so-called structure is a noncommutative space.
