    Edit: I think so. On the internet I've found the solution to the second edition and 1 website claims there's the solution manual for the 3rd.

    Edit2: I think I've found it on the Internet. Is the last exercise of the last chapter the exercise 11.18? If so, then the answer to your question seems to be yes.

    Providing a link to either a student or an instructor solution manual violates Physics Forums rules. If a student solution manual is available, then you should purchase a legal copy. If there is an instructor solution manual, it is meant for instructors.

    Before sending a manual, usually a publisher tries to verify that a person is an instructor at an institution.

    I was referring to an instructor solution manual that contains solutions to all problems, not a student solution manual, to which you gave a link, that gives solutions to selected problems. I have been asked by publishers a number of times for verification that I am an instructor.
    I have taught from the second edition, but I have yet to look at the third edition.
