The Journal of Mathematical Physics defines the field 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".[1] It is a branch of applied mathematics."  From Wikipedia contributors. "Algebra." Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Thur. 17 December 2015.
