By Sidney B. Cahn,Gerald D. Mahan,Boris E. Nadgorny,Max Dresden

In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the information essential to go the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved ordinary and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston college, college of Chicago, collage of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, college of Maryland, college of Michigan, Michigan country, 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. a variety of fabric is roofed and comparisons are made among comparable difficulties of other faculties to supply the scholar with adequate info to consider 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 advisor to Physics difficulties: half 2: Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, and Quantum Mechanics:

"… A advisor to Physics difficulties, half 2 not just serves a tremendous functionality, yet is a excitement to learn. via deciding on difficulties from diverse universities or even diverse medical cultures, the authors have successfully kept away from a one-sided method of physics. the entire difficulties are strong, a few are very fascinating, a few certainly fascinating, a couple of are loopy; yet them all stimulate the reader to contemplate physics, no longer simply to coach you to cross an examination. i actually bought huge excitement in operating the issues, and that i could wager that any one who desires to be a certified physicist might event comparable amusement. … This booklet could be an outstanding aid to scholars and professors, in addition to a resource of delight and enjoyment." (From Foreword via 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 number of difficulties … Thought-provoking, interesting, 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 options very informative. i'd definitely suggest it to all graduate scholars and physicists mostly … relatively important 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 most important parts of physics addressed through Ph.D. qualifying tests. … Will end up most precious to either college and scholars. certainly, I plan to exploit this fabric as a resource of examples and illustrations that would be labored into my lectures." (Douglas turbines, college of California at Irvine)
