    thank you for your reply so much!
    En,uh. I just want to do theoritical physics in the future. I knew mathematics is very, very important to comprehend the theory of physics, and actually I did encounter some difficulties while self-studying the principles of mechanics. So, I thought I should learn more about mathematics such as algebra and differentiable manifolds.
    I wish you, friends can recommend me some such books with their concrete book names!

    En, I have studied mathematical analysis and algebra.
    I am studying some other mathematics such as mathamatical phyics and probability, ordinary diffrential equation!
    If you are seasoned enough, give me some detailed suggestions!

    "Groups and their Graphs" by Israel Grossman and Wilhelm Magnus

    I used this book in my junior year of high school. It's a really good introduction to the subject.
