I'm looking for the BEST and most COMPLETE book describing(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

- The quantum mechanics of the hydrogen atom (working out completely the Schrödinger wave equation)

- The quantum mechanics of many-electron systems (with a thorough explanation of the independent particle model, central-field approximation, Hartree-Fock method, Pauli principle, electronic configurations, structure of the periodic table)

I know these are discussed in most introductory books on QM, but I am looking for a book that is putting most of the emphasis on these points, and takes the time to work out all calculations at an introductory level.

Do you know of books that add to the above two points a group-theoretical analysis of many-electron systems ?
