    I'm hoping that I can find some nice discussions about physics-related subjects. I know a lot of advanced mathematics, but I hope I can keep from going too far over your heads.

    Hi Ipetrich - I'm new here myself. Most of the members seem quite pleasant. I've found a few discussions I was useful in and I enjoy helping people learn. I myself know a lot of math as do most physicists. Some of the areas that a college educated physicist learns includes, but is not limited to, advanced calculus, Fourier analysis, tensor analysis, differential geometry, linear algebra, abstract algebra, complex analysis, combinatorics, matrix analysis, real analysis and both linear and ordinary differential equations.

    To give you an idea of the topics we have to learn take a look at the table of contents in the following two texts

    Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences by Mary Boas

    Geometrical Methods of Mathematical Physics by Bernard Schutz

    So while we may go over some of the members heads we won't go over all of them, especially since it's unwise to make any assumptions about the scope of the members here.
