Some recommended books:

A book that covers essentially everything in both 1B71 and the second-year 2B72 mathematics course, is
*Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences*, by Mary Boas (Wiley). Other books are *Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering*, KF Riley, MP Hobson and SJ Bence (RHB), and Arfken and Webber.
*Engineering Mathematics* and *Further Engineering Mathematics* by K A Stroud (Macmillan).

*Physical Chemistry*, Atkins, Oxford.

*An Introduction to Mechanics*, by Kleppner and Kolenkow (McGraw-Hill).

*Physics of Atoms and Molecules* (Longman) by B.H. Bransden and C.J. Joachain

C. Kittel, *Introduction to Solid State Physics*. 7th edition, and N. W. Ashcroft and N. D. Mermin, *Solid State Physics*.

B.H.Bransden and C.J.Joachain, *Introduction to Quantum Mechanics*, Longman - covers most of the Quantum physics up to MSci (4th yr).

*Introduction to Cosmology*, 2nd Edn., Matts Roos, 1997, John Wiley & Sons - covers physical cosmology.

C.D. Murray and S.F. Dermott, *Solar System Dynamics*, (Cambridge University Press)
