math for grad school
I'm an undergrad chemical engineer. I may switch to chemistry or materials science/engineering. I've taken abstract algebra, which sucked a lot. I should have taken the other professor's section.
Anyways, I hate proofs. I'm wondering if I should continue math with real analysis. I heard that some people in grad school have to take undergrad math courses because they needed it, but haven't taken them in college. I don't think I will be needing anymore theoretical math, since I hate proofs and I don't need them for research in engineering.
On the other hand, I LOVE applied math. The things you can do with matrices are very interesting to me.
Can I have some suggestions

Some important topics I think are
Partial Differential Equations
Fourier Series/ Transforms
Matrices/ Eigenvectors/ Eigenfunctions/ Eigenvalues
This is just some of the mathematics that I have covered in my physics degree to date.
Real analysis does include some topics like Hilbert Spaces, which I have come accross. But it seems to cover convergence and limits of sequences and things like that. I reckon there are better mathematics courses you could take.
