Does anyone have recommendation for a physics problems collection book (series) that is similar to Demidovich's A Collection of Problems and Exercises in Mathematical Analysis? I am looking for the encyclopediac coverage and Russian editorial style, if you like.


I'd like problems for 1) senior undergraduates major in physics and/or 2) Ph.D. candidates in physics

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

Have a look at the Schaum series, they have a lot of solved problems. For example here. There are too some Schaum titles for basic physics (here) and some topics, like Lagrangian Mechanics, see here. – Eduardo Guerras Valera Jan 17 '13 at 8:38

I don't know at what level you want the problems. Some excellent sources for olympiad level problems are :

  1. Irodov
  2. Krotov
  3. 200 puzzling physics problems

The last one is especially good. For undergrad level physics problems, it is best you refer to individual textbooks.

If you solve Irodov, you'll probably be able to solve anything else in the 'general physics' sense ;) So I agree with ramanujan_diracs choice :) – dingo_d Jan 17 '13 at 7:33
