This book contains graduate-level problems with carefully presented solutions and covers topics in radio astronomy. The problems are arranged following the content of the book “Tools of Radio Astronomy, 4th Ed.” by Rohlfs and T.L.Wilson (also available in the Astronomy and Astrophysics Library) on a chapter-by-chapter basis. Some of these problems have been formulated to provide an extension to the material presented in "Tools of Radio Astronomy".
