  • this video is very helpful. Im in a computer science program now and my university and im also working on a Math degree part time at another university (one class a term) and your advice on knowing the advanced Mathematics is spot on. Its truly helping me understand things and with my internship.
  • The simple fact is that no matter if you do math or physics, you are going to do a ton of math. Physics does get into statistical analysis and other fun mathy goodness. Math degree will get into proofs which is interesting but not as much stats (at least that I know of), physics will get into statistical analysis.  the stuff he talks about as physi...
  • Wrong, physics gets into calculus and lineair algebra mostly, whereas math also goes into things like complexity, analysis, graph theory and group theory which can be very important in computer science.
  • as someone who has done a physics degree we covered complex analysis, graph theory, group theory and statistical data analysis in very very high amounts of detail.
  • Right, I didn't mean to say physics doesn't go deep into maths, but I do think there's a difference. With analysis I meant the study of the fundamentals of calculus, like proving things about infinite series and how they converge to real numbers and the fundamentals of differentiation and integration on various number systems plus defining and prov...
