Math needed for graduate theoretical nuclear physics program?

  • #1
So, basically I need a roadmap of the math required for nuclear theory. I've completed Calc (1-3) and teaching myself ODE. My roadmap currently is PDE, Complex Analysis, Linear Algebra and Numerical methods. I'm going to work through Arfkens 2nd edition of math methods. Any thing else I should really know?

Statistics? Boundary value problems?

MIT Open Courseware has a list of courses

It looks like vector analysis would be useful too.
Statistics is already a requirement for me so that's why I didn't include it. Vector analysis is included in my math methods course and I'm fairly certain boundary value problems is covered in that and PDE
