Hope this is the right area to be posting it in.


I've checked out Tai Chow's book with the same title from my school library. There was a pretty brutal Amazon review on it, but overall I find it helpful. Does anyone have suggestions on better reference guides?

I am not familiar Tai Chow's book but based on the table of contents, a better book at around the same level would be Boas.

A course in modern mathematical physics: groups, hilbert space, and differential geometry
I've only borrowed it from my library and read sections, but its pretty good. I'm going to buy it soon.

This is a good book (I own a copy), but it's not the type of book for which the original poster is looking.
