Hey guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm very interested in physics but I am studying computer science at univeristy so I dont get to learn it formally anymore. However, I still read to learn. I recently read Einsteins book on relativity and Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time. I now want to read a good book just on quantum physics, however I would like one that contains maths as well. My main annoyance with A Brief History of Time was that there was no maths whatsoever. However, I have found that most books seem to be either completely void of maths or contain very high level maths that I wouldn't be able to understand.

To let you know what kind of maths level I am at, I took both Maths and Further Maths at A-level and got 2 A's. I'm good with maths, but I dont really get to do too much "normal" maths anymore since I am studying computer science now, so bear in mind there is a limit to my knowledge.

For you americans that dont know what A-levels are (UK thing), it means that I basically spent 2/3rds of my time at school between 16 and 18 studying maths alone. In terms of pure maths, I know fairly advanced differentiation and integration, reduction formulae, complex numbers, differential equations (1st and 2nd order), hyperbolic functions and all that type of stuff (lots more i can't remember).

Bearing that in mind, is there a particular book that would be suited to me? I'm currently thinking about getting either Schrodingers kittens or the New Quantum Universe, but from what I have read it seems they contain minimal if any maths, and certainly not any calculus.

Thanks,

merlyn
