    Basic math background would be calculus, vector analysis, numerical analysis. Also where do want to apply it? Finance, biology, various engineering disciplines, and physics are all possible areas.

    I'll add differential equations and complex variables to the above list.

    I think it would be very difficult to learn on your own. These are usually part a college program in mathematics. I don't have any sites to refer you to.

    Sorry. I've been retired for a while so I really couldn't recommend anything. I don't know your background, but I think you'll be in over your head if you try to learn all this on your own.

    oh..... forgot to tell something. I'm only 13 and my goal is to learn everything as soon as possible.

    And I'll try to find books about the subjects that you told me

    You got any more suggestions?

    At the age of 13 you should be learning elementary algebra in school. The next level would be plane geometry. I suggest you discuss this with your teacher. Teachers like to encourage bright students.
