How would you compare applied and pure mathematics? Is one more difficult than the other? What is the general difference? What do you think is the most interesting field of those two? Can someone who is bad at using applied math, be more capable of pure math and vice versa?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

("Theoretical" mathematics might be a better term instead of "pure" mathetmatics.)
