Classification of Areas of Physics

  1. Feb 22, 2009 #1
    Hello physics people.

    I love looking at the ICM program (http://www.mathunion.org/activities/icm/icm-2010-program-structure/) because I think it's the best classification system for mathematics out there. There are pretty much all the popular research topics listed and it is hard to argue against the number of lectures for each category (of course, based on how "big" the area is). No matter how interesting euclidean geometry is, it's not there, because it is not taken very seriously (no offense to euclidean geometers :smile:)

    I am wondering if there is something similar to that in physics. Something that suggests sizes of different areas, divided up nicely.

    Thanks in advance.
