Greetings Physics formus, I am a high school learner currently in my final year of schooling. I have decided that pursuing a double major in math and computer science would be a good option for my tertiary studies, as, my passion lies in the Mathematical Sciences. However, I have not decided on which branch of Mathematics to adopt. Which branch would offer me a wider range of work options when coupled with Computer Science?

Thanks in advance for any assistance :)

Definitely applied math since it covers all the useful things like differential equations

I think applied math but take some pure math courses. I'm a math major who has taken computer science courses and noticed that a lot of useful stuff for algorithm development show up in pure math courses. We touched on those topics in the computer science courses but not like we did in the math courses.
