I've been comparing program requirements for a specialist in Physics and a specialist in Mathematical Physics. Obviously the latter requires more math courses, but the exact same amount of physics courses. Furthermore, in the physics program they don't require too much math which I find strange as I thought physics would require a lot of higher level math courses - especially for Quantum Mechanics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What level of math do I need to study Quantum Mechanics? Could you be specific? Like Real Analysis, Complex Analysis, Topology, Differential Geometry, Lie Theory etc...
