To contrast the other thread. I have the opposite problem and was wondering how you fix it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Like Mathematics makes perfect sense most of the time as it's logical. I can read a very dry proof in Noncommutative algebra and it makes perfect sense. Everything is based on stuff I know to be true built up by Mathematical proof and logic.

Not only that but you know it's true and you can the reason why it's true. However, Physics is like herp derp this method is being used. That's how I see it. Most Physics book are based on vague intuition or experiments that are like this experiment proves this. Saying that I can't even do the experiment and even then it's based on a lot more assumptions.

I took a course in Quantum Mechanics and it was impossible to follow. The Mathematics used was stupid, the proofs used can barely be called proofs more like handwaving. However, Physics to me seems like some big handwave.

But, yeah I need to learn some Physics because I'm planning to do project that is worth 1/3 of last year on RH or Riemann geometry. So would want to understand Quantum Chaos or some aspects of general relativity.

P.S. Frustrates me a lot. Like real analysis comes so easy to me, yet a lot of Physics is a struggle. Which, is sad as I originall planned to do Physics. I'm still hoping to one day become a Mathematical Physics even through at the moment would have to look to doing a PhD in Pure Mathematics next year.
