By Sidney B. Cahn,Boris E. Nadgorny,C.N. Yang
In order to equip hopeful graduate scholars with the data essential to go the qualifying exam, the authors have assembled and solved commonplace and unique difficulties from significant American universities – Boston college, college of Chicago, college of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, collage of Maryland, collage of Michigan, Michigan country, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, 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 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 publication, Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics; Part 2 covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics.
Praise for A consultant to Physics difficulties: half 1: Mechanics, Relativity, and Electrodynamics:
"Sidney Cahn and Boris Nadgorny have energetically accrued and awarded ideas to approximately one hundred forty difficulties from the assessments at many universities within the usa and one college in Russia, the Moscow Institute of Physics and know-how. many of the difficulties are fairly effortless, others are really difficult; a few are regimen, others ingenious." (From the Foreword by means of C. N. Yang, Nobelist in Physics, 1957)
"Generations of graduate scholars might be thankful for its lifestyles as they organize for this significant hurdle of their careers." (R. Shankar, Yale University)
"The e-book of the quantity might be of serious support to destiny applicants who needs to move this kind of exam." (J. Robert Schrieffer, Nobelist in Physics, 1972)
"I was once definitely inspired … The publication might be priceless to scholars who're learning for his or her examinations and to college who're trying to find acceptable problems." (M. L. Cohen, collage of California at Berkeley)
"If a scholar is aware how you can clear up those difficulties, they've got long gone a ways towards learning the topic matter." (Martin Olsson, collage of Wisconsin at Madison)
"This booklet becomes an important research advisor for graduate scholars whereas they organize for his or her Ph.D. exam. it's going to turn into both helpful for the college who write the questions." (G. D. Mahan, college of Tennessee at Knoxville)
