Choosing modules for theoretical Physics from Math Graduate Diploma course:


Hi forum members, I am studying Math Graduate Diploma at Kings College london. I am going to do M.Sc Theoretical Physics next year. I need your advice in choosing Math Grad Diploma modules closely related to the M.Sc theoretical Physics or modules which are helpful in understanding Theoretical Physics much better.

I have to choose 8 modules from the following:

Partial Differential Equations and Complex Variables
Analysis I
Linear Algebra
Geometry of Surfaces
Applied Analytic Methods
Topics in Mathematics
Real Analysis II
complex Analysis
Galois Theory
Topology
Logic
Special Relativity and Electromagnetism
Introductory Quantum Theory
Space-Time Geometry and General Relativity
Mathematical Finance II: continuous time
Rings and Modules
Representation Theory of Finite Groups
Linear Systems with Control Theory
Introduction to Linear Systems with Control Theory
History and Development of Mathematics
Topics in Applied Probability
Mathematical Finance I: discrete time
Theory of complex numbers

My selections:
# Intermediate dynamics
# Special relativity & electromagnetism
# Introductory quantum theory
# Space-time geometry & general relativity

My Tutor selections (Which are included with my selection):

# Representation theory of finite groups
# Fourier analysis
# Complex Analysis
# Groups and symmetries or Geometry of surfaces

My selections + my tutor selections = 8

However, my selections should be in such a way that it should be easy and must be related to physics.


Overall selection:

# Intermediate dynamics
# Special relativity & electromagnetism
# Introductory quantum theory
# Space-time geometry & general relativity
# Representation theory of finite groups (not sure about this)
# Fourier analysis
# Complex Analysis
# Geometry of surfaces


Please comment on my selection overall.

Is it too difficult for students as per my selection considered?
Is it related to understanding M.Sc theoretical Physics ?

What is your choice ?
Please add your choice that I need to consider.

Please advice me and guide me !

Those subjects look good. Why does it have to be easy..? Really all of those topics you've shown will have some part of difficulty, and electromagnetism, quantum theory, SR+GR will potentially be very difficult if you're taking a strong mathematical standpoint.

thank you for your reply, I am not sure and I have dyslexia. so I take lot of time in undersranding simple topics so thats why !
is it ok ?
