I Math in quantum physics

  1. May 27, 2017 #1
    Besides the basics what are the theories in math that I need to know for learning quantum physics?
    And what books do you recommend for learning then?

    I suggest a forum search. Your question has been answered here several times. A good place to start is often the links provided at the end of this page (these are bot-generated, so may not be as applicable as you would like but still ... a good place to start).

    You basically need linear algebra and calculus. A good grasp of complex algebra is also necessary.
