Which fields are they? Maybe a ranking if you can give one.

As far as I know, Sally Field has a very minimal amount of geometry/topology in her work. I think there was a scene of her doing some algebra in an episode of Gidget.fields (non mathematical term) in maths.

But still it's very related in a way since one can define geometry in terms of algebraic concepts. What is something that is so far from topology and geometry that there is not the slightest connection?

It is very hard to find a branch of mathematics that has absolutely no connection to geometry or topology, particularly since you don't think abstract algebra is not far enough away. I could suggest number theory but then the pythagorean theorem might turn you off. Also abstract probability theory could qualify, as long as you don't use Borel fields for sigma fields.What is something that is so far from topology and geometry that there is not the slightest connection?

So maybe analysis related stuff? How about mathematical logic?It is very hard to find a branch of mathematics that has absolutely no connection to geometry or topology, particularly since you don't think abstract algebra is not far enough away.
