I'm an EE undergraduate and I'm specializing in Signals and Systems. I'm also minoring in pure math.

So, in the fall I have to begin a 3-quarter sequence in one of the following math subjects:

- Abstract Algebra
- Real Analysis
- Probability

Each of these subjects is an in-depth 3-quarter sequence. What would give me the most advantage as an EE specializing in signals? I like pure math, and "romantically" I've been attracted to Real Analysis (I always wanted to prove everything I know about calc). But I'm quite interested in all 3 of these math fields. Which track would serve me best?

According to my schedule and minor requirements, here are my possibilities, I can only finish one sequence and start another. (which is not bad... I'd still learn a third)

- -- 3 quarters Real Analysis, 1 quarter Probability
- -- 3 quarters Real Analysis, 1 quarter Abstract Algebra
- -- 3 quarters Probability, 1 quarter Real Analysis
- -- 3 quarters Probability, 1 quarter Abstract Algebra

As you can see, due to schedule conflicts 3 quarters of Abstract Algebra is impossible. So it's sort of "Probability or Real Analysis." Somehow, I'm beginning to think Probability will suit me better as an EE. (I've taken the EE department probability course but it was pretty superficial and went too fast to truly understand the concepts.)

Much thanks for any advice!
