    But It

This book is an exercise book that contains the full solutions of 123 exercises and problems, including 89 exercises of a textbook Methods of Mathematical Physics, authored by the same authors (Rinton Press 2005), and additional 34 problems that should deepen and extend the contents of the textbook. For the convenience of the user, each question is reproduced in the book, followed immediately by the solution or solutions. There are also hint and discussion for each problem. Therefore this current book serves also as a reference book in solving mathematical problems in physics and can be used as a textbook for exercise courses.

This book accompanies a text book, Methods of Mathematical Physics, by the same authors.
