## Main Question or Discussion Point

i'm currently in my 2nd yr in a course in theo phys, but my college hasn't put a course aside for the sublject so instead we sit in on maths and physics courses. i'm having a problem with real and complex analysis as while i find the principles dealt with in them useful the only areas we're tested on in the subjects is our ability to prove theorems and lemmas, which i find very tedious.

what i'm wondering is is this ability crucial to a theoretical physicist, or are we only being tested on it because we are being taught as mathematicians?
