I was just wondering, what math is needed to fully understand the mathematics of general relativity, quantum mechanics, and string theory? Can you be specific in naming them? For example(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

General Relativity

Algebra

Calculus

I know there has to be more than that but that was an example. I am curious because I want to eventually learn the math behind these theories.

Thanks!!
