Group theory textbook suggestions?

  1. Dec 24, 2012 #1
    I'm looking for a text that covers group theory and its applications for QM and QFT, targeted towards an audience that knows their QM but is ignorant of everything quantum fieldy. Any recommendations?

    There's always the classic, "The Theory of Groups and Quantum Mechanics" by Weyl.

    I've always liked the group theory book for physicists by Wu Ki Tung published by World Scientific in 1984.

    Looking quickly at the table of contents, this seems to be exactly the sort of book I was looking for. Thanks for the recommendation.
