Look Einstein and Newton were physicists (altho the latter is not so clear-cut). Maths goes into a needless amount of depth, pure maths at that level is pretty useless. Maths is just over-rated in my opinion, don't get me wrong I like it alot but I only see it as a tool for physicists.
I daresay that a big part of "intelligence" is knowing when to quit.
Maths is to physics, as Philosophy is to everything.
It provides a fundamental underpinning of first-concepts, and it deals with all the tricky **** that no one else wants to deal with
what about Computer Scientists?
