    Could someone recommend a good textbook on methods of mathematical physics?

    Depends on your academic level and application. These are undergraduate to graduate level books:

    Numerical Techniques:
    Fundamental Numerical Methods and Data Analysis - G. Collins.pdf

    Analytical Techniques:
    Methods for Solving Inverse Problems in Mathematical Physics - Prilepko, Orlovskiy.pdf

    As n0_3sc said, it depends on what you have in mind.

    Take a look at this thread.

    Or did you have stuff like this in mind?

    george i read that second post and i can't imagine a practicing scientist/physicist being unfamiliar with something as basic as group theory, for example. i was always under the impression that abstract math was as tantamount to physical intuition in science.
