This greeting from a newcomer was posted out of place (in bibliography) so I copy here, to give J. his own thread. Please welcome.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My comment: Jonny the core message here may actually belong in the "Academic guidance" forum up near the top of PF main menu. I will copy and highlight what I think is the gist, in case anyone wants to respond. Good luck with your courses this semester! Jonnyb42 said: ↑Hi everyone, I most likely do not belong here at all, but I wanted to ask a few questions. This topic seems very heated and I am liking physics a lot right now. I am a freshman in college and I am studying math my guts out because String theory, and other proposed GUT theories require the craziest math I know of. Is the "math path" on the superstringhtheory website accurate? I am basing my studies off of that, although I don't know any other math than that anyways haha. Is it possible to learn any technical information about string theory with the mathematics level of multivariable calculus? I assume no, but if so please let me know.

I am currently in multivariable calculus class, while studying differential equations, linear algebra, and I am walking into a Classical Mechanics and graduate differential equations (that class I understand much less than the others but I try to pick up on a few things. For example, they went over lp norms and I researched that, I am sad to realize that I only know of one space - Euclidean space. I cannot wait to try to imagine the others.)

Thanks.
