In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the information essential to cross the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved normal and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston collage, college of Chicago, college of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, college of Maryland, collage of Michigan, Michigan kingdom, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, college of Tennessee at Knoxville, and the collage of Wisconsin at Madison – and Moscow Institute of Physics and know-how. quite a lot of fabric is roofed and comparisons are made among comparable difficulties of alternative colleges to supply the coed with sufficient info to believe cozy and assured on the examination. Guide to Physics Problems is released in volumes: this ebook, Part 2, covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics; Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics.
Praise for A consultant to Physics difficulties: half 2: Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, and Quantum Mechanics:
"… A consultant to Physics difficulties, half 2 not just serves a big functionality, yet is a excitement to learn. by means of choosing difficulties from assorted universities or even assorted medical cultures, the authors have successfully kept away from a one-sided method of physics. all of the difficulties are sturdy, a few are very attention-grabbing, a few definitely interesting, a number of are loopy; yet them all stimulate the reader to contemplate physics, no longer basically to coach you to move an examination. i myself got significant excitement in operating the issues, and that i could bet that any one who desires to be a certified physicist could adventure related leisure. … This booklet could be an excellent aid to scholars and professors, in addition to a resource of delight and enjoyment." (From Foreword by way of Max Dresden)
"An very good source for graduate scholars in physics and, one expects, additionally for his or her teachers." (Daniel Kleppner, Lester Wolfe Professor of Physics Emeritus, MIT)
"A great choice of difficulties … Thought-provoking, wonderful, and simply undeniable enjoyable to solve." (Giovanni Vignale, division of Physics and Astronomy, collage of Missouri at Columbia)
"Interesting certainly and relaxing. the issues are inventive and their suggestions very informative. i'd definitely suggest it to all graduate scholars and physicists commonly … really precious for academics who wish to take into consideration difficulties to give of their course." (Joel Lebowitz, Rutgers University)
"A very completely assembled, fascinating set of difficulties that covers the major components of physics addressed through Ph.D. qualifying checks. … Will end up most precious to either school and scholars. certainly, I plan to take advantage of this fabric as a resource of examples and illustrations that may be labored into my lectures." (Douglas turbines, collage of California at Irvine)
