physics in graduate school. I was wondering if it is better to double

major in math and physics, at the expense of taking less physics

classes and more rigorous proof based math, or minor in math and take

the two semester 'Mathematical Methods of Physics' course and a few other math

courses and more physics courses. I guess I really want to know if the

rigorous proof based math courses will help me become a better

theoretical physicist, or if I should just learn how to apply higher

level math techniques to problems of physics. I appreciate any advice

you can give me.
