There been some discussion about whether good at maths implies good at physics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I like to ask something else. Can someone be bad at maths but good at theoretical physics?

bad obviously means not as good compared to most of the maths people. And not just bad as in knowing less but also bad as in lesser mathematical ability, in general. Have a vote and discuss.

If possible then give us some examples. Maybe Einstein was one. Any more recent ones?
