I'm looking for a textbook in quantum mechanics that relies heavily on Green functions and the path integral formalism to supplement my QM books. I want to do some calculations using alternative methods (path integrals, green functions, Lagrangians etc).

Feynman & Hibbs is the most lucid introduction to the subject. –  Prathyush Nov 21 '12 at 17:17

Maybe these PDFs will help you...

Just open it in new tab and download it:

And if there is any problem "The Google" is always available, just use it with advanced search...

Feynman's textbook "Quantum Mechanics and Path Integrals - Feynman and Hibbs" has just been reprinted and is now at a very affordable price and well worth the money.

Also could try "Path Integrals in Field Theory - U. Mosel".

Or just search online, there are lots of good lecture notes on this.

The Feynman integral book by Johnson and Lapidus tries to do everything in QM with the path integral! It is not quite a textbook though.

The book ''Feynman integral calculus'' by Smirnov
is a textbook, and has problems and solutions.
