Mathematics needed to be an astrophysics

  1. Nov 30, 2014 #1
    Hi. I completed my undergrad major in physics and want to go to grad school for astrophysics. I want to have a year revision of the mathematics needed for astrophysics. What type of math is needed to excel to be a successful astrophysicist. I have some lacking in integration . What others are needed?

    You can't be an astrophysics!!!
    Anyway, its too diverse. But I think there is no special math required to be an astrophysicist that is not needed in other parts of physics and there are lots of mathematical subjects to learn for becoming a physicist. Here you can find a list.
