On the top of those I think I should have books of "similiar status" for QM, statistical physics and solid state physics. Any suggestions?

The best there is.You could switch to J.J.Sakurai[2],if u don't like functional analysis...

Springer also published J.Schwinger's [3] course.It is rather good.

As for statistical phsysics,well,for learning/as a textbook (meaning a lot of examples & calculations),i'd say the book on thermo & stat in the Greiner[4] series.For more advanced look,either the 2 volumes in the Landau & Lifschitz [5,6]collection,or K.Huang [7].

For nonequilibrium SM,i'd say R.Balescu's [8]1975 book is good...

Zapper or someone else may give insights into solid state pysics.Kittel's [9]introductory book could be used as a textbook...

Daniel.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll browse through those for a bit to see which I like better.
