My current circumstances do not permit me to get an undergraduate major in either of those three, though in grad school I'll probably take up one of those three. I would like a list of mathematical topics I should be well acquainted with to do any of those three in graduate school. I'm planning to do it in Europe though, and I heard they cover advanced mathematics in undergrad there. Here's what I think I should know:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculus

Multivariable Calculus

Linear Algebra

Ordinary differential equations

Probability and Statistics

Abstract Algebra

Discrete Math

Topology

Real and Complex Analysis

Partial Differential Equations

Differential Geometry

Calculus of Variations
