The short story is that I'd like to go through university level maths and physics because:

- I like maths and physics

- Deepening knowledge of maths would be useful in my programming career

**Formal education**

The longer story is that while being a kid, I loved mathematics. Took extra lessons, went on a competitions (with some awards), generally spent a lot of time studying maths in my free time. In secondary school I was also introduced to physics and I liked it even more than maths

Then in high school, because of some other troubles I had as a kid, I grew a dislike to science and stopped doing all that in my free time. I still got great grades in both subjects, but wasn't interested in them enough to work on anything more than what school demanded from me.

Still for my career I choose computer science, which was 30-40% about maths. The maths on my university was at high level, hard and very theoretical. I passed everything without any huge problems, but I didn't feel my level of understanding the material was thorough. After university I haven't been coming back to maths at all.

What I want now?

What I want now?

Now after some years I matured and am feeling that my kindness for mathematics and physics is growing again. I'd like to know more in both of those areas than what I know so far. So I'm decided to educate myself in both of those topics.

I enjoy self-studying, so I'm planning to just get some text books and practice on my own. I'm not afraid of putting a lot of time into it. AlsoI I like to not only be able to do things, but understand how they work in-detail, so I prefer more theoretical approaches.

**My level**

Iwent through university maths, but as I said I don't feel I understand it thoroughly, so I'd like to go through it again, this time in a very thorough way.

With physics I stopped at high-school level.

**Question**

What books would you recommend to go through for this kind of education?
