Someone has some suggestion about self-study book about "Laplacian" and "Hamilton Operator".

It depends on the degree of detail and mathematical formalism that you want.

"Quantum Mechanics" by David J. Griffiths. Not as good as his book on electrodynamics, but complete and very didactil. Ideal for self-study.

When I studied Physics, we used "Quantum Mechanics" by Cohen-Tannoudji et al (it seems that it is no longer in print). Very formal but easy to read and to understand.
