    Hello, could someone please tell me the sort of mathematics subjects/areas of study are typically needed to study physics.

    For an undergraduate physics degree, the most important things are calculus (both single-variable and multivariable) and differential equations. Some linear algebra and probability/statistics also help.

    For graduate study, add complex analysis and group theory.
