# Do I have a good math sequence for a Physics Major who want to go into QFT

I like to plan ahead so as of now I basically have a good idea what my schedule will be like for all 4 year of college. I want to go into QFT eventually so I think the math classes I have decided to take will be best for that. They are Multivariable calculus( freshmen year 1st semester) Half a semester of Complex variable, Linear Algebra and Differentials equations( freshmen year 2nd semester), Mathematical physics( Sophomore year 1st semester), applied Partial differential equations ( Sophomore year 2nd semester), Abstract Algebra( Junior year 1st semester), Differential geometry( Junior year 2nd semester), Analysis 1( Senior year 1st semester) I'll take analysis 2 depending on how the 1st one goes. Also I'll stick in this required probability class during some summer session. How does it look these math classes.

This course covers the study of basic topics in analysis with emphasis on methods. Sequences, series, functions, uniform convergence, continuity, partial differentiation, extreme value problems with constraints, Riemann integrals, line integrals, improper integrals, integrals with parameters, transformations, Riemann-Stieltjes integral, uniform and absolute convergence of integrals. Beta and Gamma functions.

This is the syllabus for my analysis class I will hopefully take if I make it.

It would be wise to take some functional analysis (I guess that's analysis 2). You won't be a lot with just analysis 1...

Thanks micromass if I do good in Analysis 1 I will take Analysis 2 for sure.
