    Hi. I am very curious and fascinated to know what area of mathematics is common to all other areas of mathematics.

    Thank you.

    This can perhaps be answered by this video on the various fields of mathematics:

    From there you'll have to decide which is the most fundamental discipline of mathematics.

    Some would say set theory, others might say proof and still others might say algebra or geometry and all would be right.
