The order to read Mathematical Physics

  1. Feb 28, 2009 #1
    Assume that I have read Calculus, completed IPhO Syllabus, finished Irodov, Krotov and Kleppner.

    Now, how should I proceed so as to make a transition to Mathematical Physics.

    Please list the topics in correct order to read. Please recommend some books for reading those topics.

    Also, if possible, please provide links where I can find their e-books free.

    I have not read this myself, but I will buy this and read / study it this summer:

    Have you studied multivariable calculus? Real analysis? Linear algebra?

    Yes, most of them. Actually, I was just asking for the sequence of all these things and the books for them.

    I will be very thankful if you help. Please, at least, tell the correct sequence.
