PHYS 443 - Electromagnetic Theory


This course treats the interactions between electrical charges in free space by developing the concepts of potential, electric and magnetic fields, and electromagnetic induction. Maxwell’s equations are developed and used to derive the properties of plane electromagnetic waves in free space. Special emphasis is placed on boundary value problems and other useful mathematical techniques. Three lectures per week. Prerequisite(s): PHYS 227  and   Fall semester. (4 Credits)
