Abstract:

"We present a list of open questions in mathematical physics. After a

historical introduction, a number of problems in a variety of different fields

are discussed, with the intention of giving an overall impression of the

current status of mathematical physics, particularly in the topical fields

of classical general relativity, cosmology and the quantum realm. This list

is motivated by the recent article proposing 42 fundamental questions (in

physics) which must be answered on the road to full enlightenment [1].

But paraphrasing a famous quote by the British football manager Bill

Shankly, in response to the question of whether mathematics can answer

the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, mathematics

is, of course, much more important than that." -- Prof. A. A. Coley,
