In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the data essential to cross the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved average and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston collage, collage of Chicago, collage of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, college of Maryland, college of Michigan, Michigan country, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, collage 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 colleges to supply the coed with adequate details to suppose 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 advisor to Physics difficulties, half 2 not just serves an enormous functionality, yet is a excitement to learn. via picking out difficulties from diversified universities or even assorted medical cultures, the authors have successfully refrained from a one-sided method of physics. the entire difficulties are reliable, a few are very attention-grabbing, a few definitely interesting, a couple of are loopy; yet them all stimulate the reader to consider physics, now not in simple terms to coach you to go an examination. i actually got enormous excitement in operating the issues, and that i might wager that anybody who desires to be a qualified physicist may adventure related amusement. … This e-book should be a very good aid to scholars and professors, in addition to a resource of enjoyment 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 choice of difficulties … Thought-provoking, unique, and simply undeniable enjoyable to solve." (Giovanni Vignale, division of Physics and Astronomy, collage of Missouri at Columbia)



"Interesting certainly and stress-free. the issues are creative and their recommendations very informative. i might definitely suggest it to all graduate scholars and physicists generally … rather invaluable for academics who wish to take into consideration difficulties to provide of their course." (Joel Lebowitz, Rutgers University)



"A very completely assembled, attention-grabbing set of difficulties that covers the foremost components of physics addressed through Ph.D. qualifying tests. … Will end up most dear to either college and scholars. certainly, I plan to take advantage of this fabric as a resource of examples and illustrations that might be labored into my lectures." (Douglas generators, college of California at Irvine)
