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

In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the data essential to cross the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved common 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 nation, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, college of Tennessee at Knoxville, and the college of Wisconsin at Madison – and Moscow Institute of Physics and expertise. quite a lot of fabric is roofed and comparisons are made among related difficulties of other colleges to supply the coed with adequate info to consider cozy and assured on the examination. Guide to Physics Problems is released in volumes: this booklet, 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 tremendous functionality, yet is a excitement to learn. by means of identifying difficulties from diversified universities or even assorted clinical cultures, the authors have successfully kept away from a one-sided method of physics. all of the difficulties are strong, a few are very fascinating, a few absolutely exciting, a number of are loopy; yet them all stimulate the reader to consider physics, now not simply to coach you to go an examination. i actually got significant excitement in operating the issues, and that i might bet that anybody who desires to be a certified physicist could event comparable amusement. … This publication might be a very good aid to scholars and professors, in addition to a resource of enjoyment 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 number of difficulties … Thought-provoking, exciting, 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 inventive and their recommendations very informative. i might definitely suggest it to all graduate scholars and physicists generally … rather worthy for academics who wish to take into consideration difficulties to offer of their course." (Joel Lebowitz, Rutgers University)

"A very completely assembled, fascinating set of difficulties that covers the foremost components of physics addressed by way of Ph.D. qualifying tests. … Will turn out most precious to either school and scholars. certainly, I plan to exploit this fabric as a resource of examples and illustrations that may be labored into my lectures." (Douglas turbines, college of California at Irvine)
