Series of Books on Math/Physics?

  1. Oct 8, 2010 #1
    Think this would be a good thread to get going as I've only recently made some discoveries
    that were very helpful & new suggestions are definitely welcome.

    Obviously there is the strandard https://www.amazon.com/dp/0750628960/?tag=pfamazon01-20
    but what else it there hidden away that isn't mentioned in nearly every thread on
    physicsforums asking for book recommendations? Well, first off I found this amazing 10
    volume course on theoretical physics by Walter Greiner that simply looks astonishing!
    Browsing around I found this basically unmentioned two-part tome on classical mechanics
    by https://www.amazon.com/dp/0471091448/?tag=pfamazon01-20 which I found in my library and the contents are superb.
    This should be read by every undergraduate as far as I can ascertain from reading it.
    Another discovery is https://www.amazon.com/dp/0126546703/?tag=pfamazon01-20 5 volume course on theoretical physics :biggrin:
    In England there is a whole course published called the Manchester Physics Series that has
    barely been mentioned on here I think people would find interesting.
    Of course there are two seperate M.I.T. Berkeley Physics Series by https://www.amazon.com/dp/0393099709/?tag=pfamazon01-20.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/013805326X/?tag=pfamazon01-20 could also be considered a series.
    As for mathematics I would call Serge Lang, Michael Spivak, Richard Courant & Tom Apostol all a series.

    So, let the rare and unmentioned recommendations fly in!:biggrin:

    On the math side, Analysis I, II, III by Amann/Escher is a great series :)

    You, sir, must have a lot of time on your hands! I have my hands full with just any one of these suggestions in my spare time.

    I used Greiner's text on the electroweak theory and it was excellent.

    Taylor's classical mechanics text is also pretty good.
