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).

The Feynman integral book by Johnson and Lapidus http://tocs.ulb.tu-darmstadt.de/110841727.pdf tries to do everything in QM with the path integral! It is not quite a textbook though.

The book ''Feynman integral calculus'' by Smirnov
http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&keywords=3540306102
is a textbook, and has problems and solutions.

  • $\begingroup$ Warning: Smirnov is a loop diagram expert and that book is about Feynman loop integral not path integral. $\endgroup$ – Turgon Dec 6 '17 at 5:32

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.

Zinn-Justin has a book on Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics.

There is also Kleinert's Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics, Statistics, Polymer Physics, and Financial Markets with extensive applications to many fields.

Schulman's book Techniques and Applications of Path Integration is also very nice.

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...
