The mathematics needed for an ideal physics major comes mainly from applied mathematics.

i'd agree with this.TimNguyen said:

piggyback -- when does one learn some of the pure math (topology, lie algebra?, etc.) involved with certain aspects of theoretical physics?

I'd say applied math if you are an undergrad going for a physics degree.bambi13 said:Hi.

I'd say pure math if you are a graduate moving on to post graduate work.

Just my thoughts.
