Just started my final year of undergrad in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. In the end I'll have a BA (Hons) in Mathematics, however I've taken a lot of physics classes. I want to go on to do a PhD in theoretical physics, most likely in string theory, in mainland Europe, probably Germany or Sweden. My first issue is that so many of the university websites have broken links in English and its very difficult to find any solid info. There's also the fact that many don't seem to have any actual doctorate programs. The next issue is that they seem to require a Masters degree first. While this is understandable, my undergrad course seems to have included every course the Masters programs contain. I have taken these classes (as well as other, less relevant ones) at the corresponding levels (i.e. the classes were based on these books) Classical Mechanics - Landau, V.I Arnold Electromagnetism - Jackson Quantum Mechanics - Sakurai, Merzbacher Statistical Physics - Huang Complex Analysis - Palka (Other classes included for completeness sake - Spoiler Linear Algebra - Gelfand Calculus - Thomas Real Analysis - Spivak Calculus on Manifolds - Spivak Mechanics - Kleppner Kolenkow Group Theory - Durbin Rings, Fields, Modules - Durbin Metric, Normed, Topological Spaces - Sutherland Algebraic Geometry - Reid ODEs - Brauer, Nohel Lebesgue Integral - Bartle Number Theory - No book, pretty standard treatment Abstract Algebra - No book, covered Galois Theory) This year I am taking: Quantum Field Theory - Peskin & Schroeder, Schweber Differential Geometry - Dubrovin, Fomenko, Novikov General Relativity - Not sure what book yet Algebraic Topology - Not really based on any book, but Fulton has a lot of the stuff in it. PDEs - Strauss Functional Analysis - Conway I'm also doing a project worth 10 ECTS on scalar products relating to the algebraic Bethe ansatz in quantum spin chains. All the Masters programs I've seen would essentially have me repeating all of this. Are there any PhD programs in string theory I could get access to with the background I have? Thanks.
