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.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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 meaheadof the math in these topics, then that would be great.

thx
