This book is targeted mainly to the undergraduate students of USA, UK and other European countries, and the M. Sc of Asian countries, but will be found useful for the graduate students, Graduate Record Examination (GRE), Teachers and Tutors. This is a by-product of lectures given at the Osmania University, University of Ottawa and University of Tebrez over several years, and is intended to assist the students in their assignments and examinations. The book covers a wide spectrum of disciplines in Modern Physics, and is mainly based on the actual examination papers of UK and the Indian Universities. The selected problems display a large variety and conform to syllabi which are currently being used in various countries. The book is divided into ten chapters. Each chapter begins with basic concepts containing a set of formulae and explanatory notes for quick reference, followed by a number of problems and their detailed solutions. The problems are judiciously selected and are arranged section-wise. The so- tions are neither pedantic nor terse. The approach is straight forward and step-- step solutions are elaborately provided. More importantly the relevant formulas used for solving the problems can be located in the beginning of each chapter. There are approximately 150 line diagrams for illustration. Basic quantum mechanics, elementary calculus, vector calculus and Algebra are the pre-requisites.

From the reviews:

"The book provides a collection of problems and solutions in physics targeting mainly undergraduate students. ... The book focuses mainly on basic problems in quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and particle physics. ... the book could be a useful addition to problem and solution books in physics for undergraduate students." (Willi-Hans Steeb, zbMATH, Vol. 1271, 2013)

"Kamal ... has prepared an excellent resource for physics professors and students. ... The solutions give enough detail to understand how to solve the problems without being pedantic. ... The level of the material makes this a great book for upper-level undergraduates studying the topics for the first time, a very good resource for graduate students looking to review the material ... and a good resource for professors seeking example problems or quiz/exam problems. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Academic libraries serving upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (D. B. Mason, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)
