Quantum Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Chemistry books

  1. Apr 13, 2015 #1
    Hi, I've been self studying physics for a few years and I'm looking for some new books, specifically on Quantum Mechanics or Quantum Chemistry. It doesn't matter if they are PDF files or actual books, and price doesn't really matter. I've read Feynmans Lectures books and I'm looking for the next step now. I know trigonometry and calculus at a pretty good level. Thanks for any help that might come here.

    For quantum theory, I'd suggest to look at

    J. J. Sakurai, Modern Quantum Mechanics (>=2nd edition).

    If you have really studied the Feynman Lectures Vol. 3, it should be a good next level of sophistication.

    For quantum chemistry, check out

    P. Atkins & R. Friedman, Molecular Quantum Mechanics, 5th ed. (OUP, 2011).
