About this Textbook

This exercise book contains 300 typical problems and exercises in modern physics and radiation physics with complete solutions, detailed equations and graphs. This textbook is linked directly with the textbook "Radiation Physics for Medical Physicists", Springer (2010) but can also be used in combination with other related textbooks. For ease of use, this textbook has exactly the same organizational layout (14 chapters, 128 sections) as the "Radiation Physics for Medical Physicists" textbook and each section is covered by at least one problem with solution given. Equations, figures and tables are cross-referenced between the two books. It is the only large compilation of textbook material and associated solved problems in medical physics, radiation physics, and biophysics.

About the authors

Ervin B. Podgorsak was born in Vienna, Austria and grew up in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where he completed his undergraduate studies in technical physics in 1968. He then continued his studies in the USA at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, and obtained M.SC. and Ph.D. degrees in physics. He accomplished his post-doctoral studies in medical physics at the University of Toronto in 1974 and moved to McGill University in Montréal where he currently holds positions of Professor of Medical Physics and Director of the Medical Physics department. He is author of various successful books.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book is intended for courses in academic medical physics and biomedical engineering graduate programs as well as a reference for candidates preparing for certification examination in medical physics specialties. Graduate students in other fields of science who want to gain a deeper understanding of modern physics and its relationship with radiation physics in medicine also will find this book valuable.” (Olivier Gayou, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)
