I experimented with plotting the real and imaginary parts of the Gamma function in the complex plane separately and mixing them together in an image editing program, coming up with this. Neat, eh?

You're right, I'm more interested in pure math than in physics. (Though I'm interested in physics as well.)
Anyway, the first two years of eng phys mostly consist of pure math. I've checked, and the curriculum covers everything from the first three years of the pure math program. The rest of the first two years is essentially applied mathematics (mechanics, etc). Then in year 3, the interesting physics comes in as a bonus (thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, etc).
Better yet, I can choose a profile for years 4 and 5, which could be anything from pure physics to pure math or even computer science.
The math and physics in thermodynamics isn't as interesting as you'd think :/. I'm currently taking thermodynamics of multicomponent systems (after taking thermo I and thermo II in second year), and the most high-level math we've had to do is very simple integrals. Things like phase diagrams are pretty interesting, though.
