I am hoping to do mathematical or theoretical physics after my undergraduate science degree. I have been advised to do more maths subjects than physics subjects in order to achieve this. I am double majoring in maths and physics and I am just wondering what area of maths I should be focusing on more. my concern is that I want to leave the door for pure maths open. This means I have the choice of algebra or analysis... Does anyone have any advice on which is more useful in modern mathematical/theoretical physics?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks
