I'm a sophomore in math.I intend to learn mathematical and physics something like differential geometry,topology and QFT in my next years and do some research in some relative topics.I know I need to learn many courses and I feel I don't have enough time.This semester we open a course called probability and mathematical statistics.I know it's a basic course for students in math but I want to know How important is probability and mathematical statistics?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does it play an important role in some mathematical physics fields,like superstring,gauge theory or complex geometry?Do you use it often in your research?

How deep should I learn it you think?I'm really don't interested in it and don't have time.

Thanks for your advise.
