I'm beginning my education in quantum mechanics next semester and I'm not sure whether I should take Introduction to Analysis, which would cover "the real number system. Sequences, limits, and continuous functions in R and 'Rn'. The concept of a metric space. Uniform convergence, interchange of limit operations. Infinite series. Mean value theorem and applications. The Riemann integral" or Numerical Analysis, which would cover "programming for numerical calculations, round-off error, approximation and interpolation, numerical quadrature, and solution of ordinary differential equations. Practice on the computer." I'm going to talk to an advisor about it but I was curious what you guys thought.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
