I read Murdock's text, but he says himself that he doesn't cover it all.

And Bender's methods is more on exercising the methods than understanding them.

Any?

Thanks.

Anyone has any recommendation for a textbook/s that doesn't shun away from proofs of theorems?

Reed and Simon, Methods of Modern Mathematical Physics, Vol. I+II

Thirring, A course in mathematical physics, Vol. III

I really should be reading this series if I want to really be a mathematical physicist. :-)

Thanks.

And all the perturbation theory theorems (the main ones) are proven in Reed's and Simon's?

R&S is quite thorough, and mathematically rigorous. Moreover, each Chapter comes with long, detailed notes on references where proofs can be found for all the stuff they didn't prove. Only the newer things (post 1980?) are not included - but most of perturbation theory is very old.

But very far from being a rigorous text with rigorous proofs.
