do you need to know physics, before you learn quantum physics?

@ryande11,
I don't know. Perhaps you don't. But you need mathematics for sure.

@Cyracuz,
You said you know no physics (classical or quantum) and no mathematics, so how can you be so certain about any of their interconnections?! The beginning of learning is to grasp what you don't know.

Start by examining what the things you're ignorantly talking about actually look like, aka observe before pontificating and confusing yourself and others

@ryande11,
No. You don't. Take a look, do you like the demos here? If you do, you'll learn whatever it takes to do them. If you don't like them, find something else:

@Cyracuz,
Are you the same person who started this thread, on "Physics, mathematics, and quantum physics" by asking this question:

Are there any phisicists, mathematics and quantum physicists on these forums who can tell me what is a good place to start if I want to study these things?


I am a mathematician and I answered your question - this isn't a "reaction"! It's customary, btw, to thank persons replying to questions but never mind that.

@High Seas,
You asked how I could be sure of interconnections, referring to my claim that you need maths to do quantum physics. The you seem to be chastising me for creating confusion with my ignorance, which I cannot immediately understand the reason for. That was the reaction I was curious about.

Thanks for your answer, by the way. Wink

@Cyracuz,
Fyi, high seas is well known on this forum for jumping in and running people down. How narcissistic must one be to demand gratitude?
