In a way, aren't they all math and physics?  The study of algorithms has
long been an area mathematicians, long before computers came out, and it
is only fairly recently to my understanding that people distinguished
between math and physics.

For some reason, understanding math and algorithms seems to have little
effect on how one understands a computer though, for some reason.  At
least, thus has been my experience.
