The title is pretty much the question. My friend (who wants to go to graduate school in Physics) is between two courses the math department offers: an upper-level linear algebra course, and a second course in ODEs. Here are the course descriptions:

andMATH4200 - Differential Equations and dynamical systems

Covers ordinary differential equations in one and higher dimensions: qualitative, analytic, and numerical methods. Emphasis is on differential equations as models and the implications of the theory for the behavior of the system being modeled and includes an introduction to bifurcations.

The school in question isMATH4310 - Linear Algebra

Introduction to linear algebra, including the study of vector spaces, linear transformations, matrices, and systems of linear equations. Additional topics are quadratic forms and inner product spaces, canonical forms for various classes of matrices and linear transformations.

**Cornell**, in case anyone has further suggestions that could be relevant to Cornell in particular?

Thanks!
