I am taking a Quantum Mechanics course this semester and the professor started off by showing us how Newtonian Mechanics lead to Lagrangian Mechanics, then Hamiltonian...etc...until we got to the Quantum Mechanical wave functions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This was all done in a quantitative sense, using variational calculus. Does anyone know of any good mathematics/physics/mathematical physics textbook that goes into this type of detail for mechanics? I was looking into "Advanced Calculus" by Loomis, since Loomis' Calculus book was amazing, I imagine the Advanced book would be good too..
