The foundation of math. Math is elegant because everything is on a solid foundation. Set theory explores this.
(2) Modern Algebra
Ah! One of my favorites. Also known as Abstract Algebra. It is a math that studies algebraic structures. Those are numbers on which operations are defined, like addition and multiplication.
(3) Linear Algebra
One can say a specific case of Abstract Algebra. But it studies Vector Spaces.
(4) Classical Algebra
No idea. Perhaps you mean the standard basic High School Algebra?
(5) Partial Differential Equations
