I have time to squeeze in a few more math classes, but not all of them. So far I have taken up to calc 3, ODE, linear algebra, statistics, and a course on Mathematica programming.

I have enough room to choose from 4 of the courses below. I will learn on my own whatever I miss.

Abstract vector spaces (a linear/abstract algebra course)

PDE I

PDE II

Real analysis I

Real analysis II

Numerical analysis

Complex analysis

Variational calculus

Nonlinear dynamics and chaos I

Nonlinear dynamics and chaos II

Probability theory

Abstract algebra

Mathematical methods in physics I

Mathematical methods in physics II

Out of all of these, which ones will be most useful for a career in physics research? I can only choose four.
