Math and physics

    Just out of curiosity, to what extent is academia in mathematics different from academia in physics?
    Perhaps their perspectives on problems may be different, but what else?

    Uh, what are you even asking? Mathematics and Physics are two separate disciplines that can complement each other quite well... at times. They are different because they are different.

    Oh I meant the field of academia (???)
    like, experimental physicists need a lot of fundings to conduct their experiment while mathematicians do not require any but their salaries.
