Best books for computational quantum mechanics?

  1. Jul 25, 2014 #1

    I'm entering graduate school this fall and was looking to improve my computational physics knowledge. I have experience with MATLAB, Python, Java, and some C.

    My question is which resources do you think are the best for learning the methods required for computational quantum mechanics? Specifically, I suppose these would include partial differential equations, linear algebra, etc... I have numerous good resources on numerical integration/differentiation, but my library is lacking in these areas.

    I don't know if its the best around but there are a number available free on the internet eg:

    Computational chemistry texts may also help.
