I want to self study quantum mechanics so that I can apply it in both physics and chemistry. However I don't want one written for a layman without any mathematical equations. I want one book that will cover everything that will be taught in an introductory undergrad quantum physics course(and even more if possible!). I have heard a lot about Griffith's but I am running low on my pocket money(and won't be getting more any time soon) so I had the following books in mind. Pauling-An Introduction to Quantum Mechanics with Applications in Chemistry Feynman-Lectures on Physics vol. 3 Feynman-Quantum Mechanics and Path Integrals David Bohm-Quantum Theory(Dover Books on Physics) Gasiorowicz – Quantum Physics French, Taylor – An Introduction to Quantum Physics Eisberg, Resnick – Quantum Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei and Particles I would be buying Feynman lectures on physics vol.3 anyway. But apart from that, I want a proper quantum physics book. I am guessing mostly I would like to buy French's version since it was tailored for an MIT introductory course and I have seen that the course itself is pretty awesome. I don't think Feynman's one on path integrals is a proper introductory book as it is more of an introduction to path integrals rather than quantum mechanics. Mostly I am leaning towards the book by French and Taylor.Is the decision good or should I go for something else???
