2017 SUMMER Reading List:

1) C. W. Misner, K. S. Thorne, J. A. Wheeler, "Gravitation" (MTW)

A very useful companion to MTW is: B. Schutz, "Geometrical methods of Mathematical Physics"

Are there (other) good books on General Relativity?

2) N. I. Akhiezer and I. M. Glazman, "Theory of Linear Operators in Hilbert Space", vols. I, II (available at UGA Science Library)

D. M. Gitman, I. V. Tyutin, B. L. Voronov, "Self-Adjoint Extensions in Quantum Mechanics" (free download for members of UGA community)
