I am a physics undergraduate and I would be glad if you share your opinion about which books are best for which topics in mathematical methods, from very basic to advanced. (Like you some say Tom Apostol is good for calculus or Riley Hobson is good for vector calculus(just sayin'))

  • $\begingroup$ @KyleKanos You misinterpreted my question! What I am asking is which book is best for which topic, not a single book for everything or a book which also shows the application of the math. Thank you! $\endgroup$ Nov 30, 2019 at 13:11
  • $\begingroup$ Then you want physics.stackexchange.com/q/12175/25301, but this ask of yours is excessively broad for this Q&A format. $\endgroup$

A textbook with a wide variety of explanations and exercises and that has provided me with all the new maths I was unfamiliar with as an undergraduate would be ‘Mathematical Techniques’ by Jordan and Smith. It does apply the mathematics to physicist perspective in an informative way, with very little jargon.
