I've currently enrolled in Calculus II and have been thinking lately how far does the most complex present-day math "go"? When I say how far, I mean how complex is the "most complex" math in present time and what does that type of math offer? This topic really is hard to create a search on, so I've resorted to asking in a post. I realize this is relative to the person being asked the question, but generally, there must be an answer widely agreed to. Thanks in advance!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now that I think about it..I have a part 2 for this question. Many physicists agree that physics needs a "new type" of math for any hope to solve some of the present day equations because of the sheer complexity of the problems. When they say new type of math would they mean one that did not base itself off of integers and their units? Thanks again.
