I think everyone would agree that physicists often need to use very difficult mathematics to understand physical idea.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

how about the converse? How much physics do we, (mathematicians), need to know in order to understand Mathematics?

Personally, I think Newtonian Mechanic helps me to understand Calculus, Lagrangian Mechanic helps me to understand Calculus of Variation, and etc. Many difficult ideas in Vector and Tensor Calculus were explained with physical aspect.

I want to know how much Phys I should study further for a career in professional mathematician! Your personal experience is very appriciated.

Thx You
