Topics include the interrelations of time-dependent electric and magnetic fields and their potentials; the energy and momentum associated with electromagnetic fields and the Maxwell vacuum and matter; waveguides and transmission lines; special relativity for electromagnetism and mechanics; the retarded potentials for time varying sources; and the radiation of electromagnetic waves.
Attendance to lectures is expected. Homework assignments should be turned in on time. Late homeworks will not be accepted. There will be a midterm and a final exam.
The final grade is calculated from
|Midterm (open book)
|Final exam (closed book)
