Designed for use in tandem with the 'Handbook of Physics', this volume is nonetheless self-contained and can be used on its own. The chapters are based on lectures delivered annually by Professor Poole in a course to prepare students for their PhD qualifying examination in the physics department at the University of South Carolina. The book contains 120 selected problems (and answers) that appeared in these examinations, and each one refers to the chapter in the Handbook that discusses the background for it. Professor Farach has kept a record of all the qualifying examinations in the department since 1981. It covers all relevant physics subjects, which are otherwise scattered in different preparation publications or university scripts, including: * Atomic and General Physics * Condensed Matter Physics * Classical Mechanics * Electricity and Magnetism * Elementary Particle Physics * Nuclear Physics * Optics and Light * Quantum Mechanics * Relativity and Astrophysics * Thermo and Statistical Mechanics An excellent self-study approach to prepare physics PhD candidates for their qualifying examinations.
