Yes. It is not very useful in everyday work, unless you are
continuing to self educate yourself and get updated from
recent scientific literature. In that case, the math is an
important tool for you to be able to understand and, if
necessary to repreduce results. Various math topics I
learned are also useful as an "example" for how to observe
or how to solve a problem at hand. So, I'd say yes, I use
it, I use it a lot, and it is quite useful.
