As much or as little as possible, depending on the task at hand. A bit of calculus, linear algebra, discrete mathematics... it all depends on the project at hand.

Study all the math you can absorb (only if you like it). Anecdote: I studied math at a university and when I graduated I thought I knew it all; until a couple of years ago when a strange idea woke up my mind. I'm using Java for the implementation of that strange idea and I had to study quite a bit of computer algebra for it: symbolic evaluation is a strange but interesting mess and didn't quite exist yet when I graduated ...

kind regards,
