1. ### Maths required for studying intermediate to advance physics

Thanks for all your guys reply. Actually, I am now more confused after the last bit of the discussion..... But, indeed, this is a question without a conclusive answer. So, I'd like to ask the following: sometimes I found the proof in topic of metric space is redundant and unnecessary; the result...
2. ### Maths required for studying intermediate to advance physics

Thanks once again to Arsenic and micromass! Finally, I want to ask how much maths normally will the university teach and cover during undergraduate physics syllabus (Take the theoretical physics stream + honor stream)? I want to use the reference to check my progress.
3. ### Maths required for studying intermediate to advance physics

Thanks Zombie and Arsenic. I'd like to ask do you got books recommendation in each field stated above? (espeically Linear algebra, Elementary complex analysis, Group theory) [Personally, I have read Linear Algebra:A modern introduction and Metric Space (springer publisher). Currently, I am...
4. ### Maths required for studying intermediate to advance physics

Hope someone can help me to list the important math topics required to study for a person interested in studying condense matter, solid state physics, intermediate quantum mechanics and particle physics. (I can't get a Personally, i prefer to study math tool before studying the physics...
5. ### Thermodynamics - Adiabiatc Expansion

Re AM: (VixTi)^3/2=(VxT)^3/2=constant isn't it, since the whole process is Adiabiatic Expansion, the above equation satisfy in any time during the process.
6. ### Thermodynamics - Adiabiatc Expansion

Just a thought ΔU=nR∫(T/V)dV where T can be represent by V (VixTi)^3/2)=(VxT)^3/2=constant <-- calculate by sub initial conditions.

8. ### Calculation of potential of an grounded sphere ball with charges

Homework Statement Consider an originally neutral conductor sphere of radius R with a cavity and a point charge Q1 inside the cavity. (a)The conductor is grounded. Find the electric potential outside the conductor and the total charge on the conductor. Homework Equations The Attempt at a...
9. ### Ask for Books recommend to new G.R. learner

thanks for all of you~(my teacher suggest me not to touch G.R., he said because it's mathematical skills in G.R is too complicated, include differential geometry which I haven't learn it before. So, I think I finished those mathematical skills first, before I learn G.R.)
10. ### Ask for Books recommend to new G.R. learner

I had read Griffiths#Introduction To Electrodynamics(3rd Ed.), vector calculus(springer), fundamental of physics(except optics), first 2 chapter of classical mechanics.
11. ### Ask for Books recommend to new G.R. learner

I really want to learn about G.R. but I don't know how to study. So I hope someone would recommend books to me for the study basic G.R. (Do I need to master electromagnetic/static/dynamic, because I am really bad at it)

14. ### Lipid and protein

Homework Statement Proteins and lipids have some similar but also some different functions in living organisms. Describe these functions and explain why proteins and lipids are suitable for these functions. (It is a question for F.4) Homework Equations NO. The...
