In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the data essential to move the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved typical and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston college, collage of Chicago, collage of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, collage of Maryland, collage of Michigan, Michigan country, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, collage of Tennessee at Knoxville, and the college of Wisconsin at Madison – and Moscow Institute of Physics and expertise. a variety of fabric is roofed and comparisons are made among comparable difficulties of other colleges to supply the scholar with adequate details to believe cozy and assured on the examination. Guide to Physics Problems is released in volumes: this publication, 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 an enormous functionality, yet is a excitement to learn. by way of picking out difficulties from assorted universities or even assorted medical cultures, the authors have successfully shunned a one-sided method of physics. the entire difficulties are solid, a few are very fascinating, a few absolutely fascinating, a couple of are loopy; yet them all stimulate the reader to consider physics, no longer purely to coach you to cross an examination. i myself bought substantial excitement in operating the issues, and that i could bet that anybody who desires to be a certified physicist could event comparable entertainment. … This ebook should be an exceptional support to scholars and professors, in addition to a resource of enjoyment and enjoyment." (From Foreword by means 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 number of difficulties … Thought-provoking, enjoyable, 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 more often than not … really valuable for lecturers who wish to take into consideration difficulties to provide of their course." (Joel Lebowitz, Rutgers University)

"A very completely assembled, fascinating set of difficulties that covers the main parts of physics addressed via Ph.D. qualifying tests. … Will turn out most valuable 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)
