Need textbook suggestion for linear algebra prerequisites for quantum mechanics

  1. Jul 8, 2011 #1
    Hi, I am starting self studying quntum mechanics from Shankars textbook and need a mathematicatical methods text to cover the material he covers in his first chapter.
    Having gone through ML Boas mathematical physics text didnt help much and my linear algebra background is of Strangs linear algebra and its applications.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    What knowledge does Shankar assume that Strang doesn't cover?

    I dont think Shankar assumes anything that Strang doesnt cover.Sorry for not making myself clearer but I was looking for a mathematical methods book that covers Shankars first chapter (mathematical introduction).
