This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

My favorite physics book:

The Feynman Lectures on Physics FEYNMAN ROCKS! THE BEST PHYSICS TEACHER THERE EVER WAS!

- 7 years, 9 months ago

Best for any amateur to Number Theory is David Burton's book : Elementary Number Theory ........ an excellent read And for Physics I'd suggest Halliday, Resnick and Walker's : Fundamentals of Physics ... the best explanantion of rudimentary physics For further detailed reading, Richard Feynman's Lectures on Physics is literally mind-blowing !

Has anyone here solved the Harder problems in Mechanics from IE Irodov?

- 7 years, 9 months ago

Feynman's Lectures on physics vol 1 is great for mechanics, from the basics to the intermediate. I think Vol 2 deals with electricity and magnetism in detail but he uses more advanced math so it's hard to get through.

Hello all,

Here are some old threads we have had over the past month offering good book suggestions. Pratik, since it sounds like you are interested in all books to help you with everything on Brilliant, I have tried to collate most of our book threads.

Everybody, please feel free to recommend any other books you like, that are not on the old threads or this one. It will probably be helpful to somebody.

Books for Combinatorics

Mathematical Circles

Number theory books

Electricity and Magnetism Books

Beginning trigonometry books

sir,this week one physics question is wrong(fluorescent tube qn.) ,so can u change that with another correct question,so that those who don't know to do such incorrect question can solve the new correct queation.

Thank you, Peter.

No problem:)

Staff - 7 years, 9 months ago

why

- 7 years, 9 months ago

"No problem" is an American colloquial figure of speech used when somebody thanks you and you would like to stress that you do not mind doing something for them, and that it was no big deal. It is often used interchangeably with "your welcome."

sorry.I joked

Mathematical circles by Fomin ,Genkin and Itenberg is very good for problem solving in maths.

- 7 years, 9 months ago

Try Challenge and Thrill of pre college mathematics, published by the national board of higher math. Also consider Resnick and Halliday's Fundamentals of Physics and Sears and Zemansky University Physics. Problem Peimer for the Olympiad is also a good book for previous math olympiad problems. India and International Math Olympiads b Arihant Publications is also very good. I have used these books myself and find them quite good. All these books are available on flipkart.com for nominal rates, or can be bought as ebooks if you prefer.

sorry for that

brother...there's a limit.and you're crossing it.

could you please suggest me best books regarding quantitative aptitude

- 7 years, 9 months ago

R.S. AGGARWAL and EDGAR THORPE

if you like popular standard textbooks, university physics by young and freedman. if you want some elegant text and problems, physics for scientists and engineers by serway.

- 7 years, 9 months ago

good. I have them
