## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am interested in learning about the classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and thermodynamics as my current research in the mathematics and microbiology will involve them. I found Landau/Lifshitz series on Amazon, which seems to cover the main branches of physics.

Unfortunately, I did not take any physics since my AP Physics approximately four years ago; however, I heard that general physics is not really required as introductory books on those physical branches cover the general physics too. My mathematical background is the following: introductory analysis, complex analysis, general topology, linear algebra, calculus, and abstract algebra. I am currently studying real analysis and algebraic topology.

Is l/S series good for a beginner, given that one can allocate a large amount of time for studying? If not, could you recommend me some books?
