## Main Question or Discussion Point

I usually don't do threads like this, but I wanted to get some opinions for either people in the field, or people who have at least taken graduate level classes in GR or QM.

What are the main math topics in each of these fields? Is there much overlap at all or are the two topics pretty separate? I have taken modern physics, and am currently in spacetime physics(intro GR course), but so far all I have seen is a little bit of calculus and differential equations in both courses. Where does it really separate?

I am a math major as well as physics, and I have a ton of free math electives to choose from. Which courses out of this list would be most applicable to senior level QM or an introductory graduate course in GR?

I have to take QM 1 and 2, and want to take GR my last semester in undergrad. I have about a year before then, so if theres anyway I could take some math courses that could prepare me or even put me

thx

*ahead*of the math in these topics, then that would be great.thx
