Recommendations: Quantum Mechanics, Randomness and General Relativity Books

  1. Jan 29, 2008 #1
    Hi,

    I qualified with a physics masters in 2003 but have not really dabbled with physics since then.

    I want to get some books on Quantum Mechanics, General Relativity, and Randomness and Chaos which were the areas that I was particularly interested in while at university so that I can get back into these subjects.

    I am looking for books which start from the basics but quickly get into the complexities and really go into some detail (but at the same time are well written). I am fairly fluent in maths and so am not looking for any books which take a simplistic approach or wash over difficult areas to the topics. I guess what i'm looking for are the seminal texts in each of the fields. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    John
