What are some good writings on the relationship between what we think of as the physical world and the world of mathematical abstractions (the space in which, for example, all possible sequences exist) ?

I think the natural conclusion of a "rationalistic" way of looking at the world is that the physical world can comfortably exist within "the mathiverse" and I would like to know who has taken this position before, and who has argued against it.
