I was wondering what math I need to teach myself in order to progress in learning physics after the point of the basic books such as Stephen Hawking's The Universe in a Nutshell and Michio Kaku's Hyperspace. I have learned some from those but I want to know more advanced things now so I need to know some books to read in order to understand the physics behind things. I do realize I will need to know calc to understand most physics but what I wont need that for I can learn. Thanks, Wyman91 P.S. I am going to be a freshmen this fall so take that into consideration.
