Geometry is important for vector analysis?

  1. Jul 20, 2016 #1
    Hello from Italy
    I'm switching from CS to Physics BS because i personally find it more various and interesting (and in Rome there is one of the best physics school in the world).
    Mathematical analysis is a common subject and my credits will be recognised but i didn't study Linear algebra yet because in CS is at second year.
    To avoid to loose the first semester can I study Vector analysis (sometimes called Analysis 2) without Algebra (Geometry) or it is essential?
    Thank you and sorry for my poor english :)

    This is really something you should discuss with staff at your university. It depends on the curriculum of the different courses and the assumed prerequisites.
