(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Here's a list of most of the textbooks I've read;

Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences - Mary Boas

Introuction to Linear Algebra - Gilbert Strang

Linear Algebra - Hoffman and Kunze

Theory of Sets - Bourbaki

Algebra I (the first third of) - Bourbaki

Mathematical Analysis - Tom Apostol

Principles of Mathematical Analysis - Walter Rudin

Princples of Quantum Mechanics - R Shankar

Modern Quantum Mechanics - JJ Sakurai

Classical Mechanics - Goldstein

Classical Mechanics - Landau and Lifgarbagez

Non-rel Quantum Mechanics - Landau and Lifgarbagez

Classical Field Theory - Davidson

Introduction to Tensor Calculus and Contuum Mechanics - J Heinbockel

Intorduction to Topology and Modern Analysis - George Simmons

Algebra: Chapter 0 (first half) - Paolo Aluffi

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach - Peter Norvig (I did one of Stanford's online courses)

Introduction to Electrodynamics - David Griffiths

And of course, I've picked up some other bits and bobs along the way.

Currently reading (more than half way through);

Advanced Linear Algebra - Steve Roman

Introduction to Manifolds - Loring Tu

Introduction to Statistical Mechanics - David Chandler

What gaps do I need to fill in my knowledge? (I'm sure there must be many since my route isn't exactly the conventional one)

I'm mostly interested in physics, specifically physics of the very small althogh I've never really found a good textbook on GR to see if I like that. I'm also interested in maths, I'm quite enjoying the linear algebra and manifolds ideas too, so any reccomendations for either QFT/QED/whatever comes after you've done your basic QM, introduction to GR or book to go onto after I've finished Tu and Romans books would be welcome.

I'm also interested in learning some kind of programming language, so what books would be suitable for someone with my background?

Thanks in advance
