  • Brian noted that sometimes mathematicians were working most on one of two alternatives whereas the physicists needed the other.

  • You don't really need much depth to have the same understanding. You just need the right perspective

  • I would give everything for having the same understanding of math as he does.

  • Is there a non equivalent set of axioms that is capable of describing and deriving modern physics? I remember using a lot of theorems in theoretical physics , but that doesn't necessarily mean that there can't be equivalent descriptions that are derived differently , at least that prove wouldn't be trivial, since the theorems are implications, not equivalent to the axioms
