Hey guys, i'll be a sophomore next year, and I was wondering about what classes you could recommend me taking then, as well as advice for future coursework.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Which 4 of the following would be (the most) useful for theoretical physics?

-Differential Geometry

-PDEs

-Fourier analysis

-Complex Analysis

-Combinatorics

-Real analysis II (finish off baby rudin and more)

-Abstract algebra (all of dummit and foote)

-Dynamical systems

-Data structures (would CS be useful for a physicist???)

note: I will be taking statistical mechanics and classical mechanics II anyways

Thanks in advance!

If you are curious: I have taken (including this semester):

Calc and Vector Calc

mechanics and EnM

Differential Equations (ODEs and systems of them)

Linear algebra (went all through Axler)

difference equations

Real Analysis I (about 2/3 of baby rudin)

intro to quantum mechanics

probability theory

classical mechanics I
