Courses: Electromagnetic Theory I (PHYSB503001)
Class Number: 1370
This course is the first semester of a year-long standard sequence on electromagnetism. This semester begins with topics in electrostatics, including Coulombs and Gausss Laws, Green functions, the method of images, expansions in orthogonal functions, boundary-value problems, and dielectric materials. The focus then shifts to magnetic phenomena, including the magnetic fields of localized currents, boundary-value problems in magnetostatics, and the interactions of fields and magnetic materials. The last portion of the course treats Maxwells equations, transformation properties of electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic waves and their propagation and, time permitting, the basics of waveguides. This course is taught in a seminar format, in which students are responsible for presenting much of the course material in class meetings.
