My first Book – Mathematical Physics (Complete Guide to NET, GATE, JEST and JAM)

My first Book – Mathematical Physics (Complete Guide to NET, GATE, JEST and JAM)

Mathematical Physics is the highest weighted topic for CSIR NET Physical Science exam. Now a days there are NINE questions coming from there. It also contains a substantial part in IIT JAM, GATE , JEST, TIFR and other MSc and PhD qualifying exams. Mathematical Physics also is the field where you, the students, suffer a lot because of poor understanding and lack of problem solving. There are good textbooks on the subjects, but no proper guidebook to help your preparation for the competitive exams. These are the reasons why we are writing this book.

This is not a textbook. Neither this is just a problem solution book. This book is your friend who guide you to build your concepts on Mathematical Physics and lead you to crack the M.Sc and PhD entrance examinations. The heart of the book is divided into three cores. First is the basic guidance – telling you what to read, where from to read and which problems to solve, second is is the solutions of the problems which was asked in the previous year competitive exams of CSIR NET, GATE, JEST, TIFR and JAM and the third is the exercises to test what have you learned.

The first thing we like to tell you that there is no alternative of basic Textbooks reading. For mathematical physics the textbooks are Boas, Riley Hobson, Arfken, Spiegel etc. In this book we have tell you which topics of your syllabus of NET to be read from which books. Sometimes you may not need to read the whole chapter itself. We have told you how much you need to know and how much you don’t need to know.

After you finished your basic reading from textbooks you need problems to solve. We have collected all relevant previous year problems from CSIR NET (June 2011 to December 2018), GATE (2005 – 2018), JEST (2012-2018), TIFR (GS-2010 to GS-2019) and JAM (2005-2018) of mathematical physics, sorted those problems chapter-wise and given you the solutions. Each chapter is divided into three sections. In the first section we will tell you from where you need to read the basic concepts with some solved examples to build your concepts. In the second section there will be problems from various competitive exam papers as mentioned before. You first try the problems by yourself, if you could not get any idea to solve then please read the relevant chapters and sections from the textbooks and see the examples from the first section of the book- attempt again, even after that if you could not solve, then only look at the solutions. Ans keys and complete solutions are given at the end of the each chapter. In the third section there are exercises selected by the authors to check that you have finally generated the skill required to solve unknown problems.

IIT JAM aspirants may skip the chapters of Group Theory , Tensor, Green’s function and Numerical Methods. You may skip some of the advanced questions on complex analysis.

We are not claiming that the book is free of all mistakes. No one can claim that. If you find any kind of misprints and mistakes please contact us by email or phone. You can also contact us for any other feedback, any question, any clarification.You can also post the problems in our Facebook group { CSIR-NET, JEST, GATE Physics Guidance at Kolkata} and discuss there. Feel free to contact us by email/phone anytime to discuss any problem on Mathematical Physics.
