PHYS 3327

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

Focuses on advanced electro/magnetostatics, such as vector and scalar potentials and multipole expansion of the potential solutions to Laplace's Equation and boundary value problems, as well as  time-dependent electrodynamics: Maxwell's Equations, electromagnetic waves, reflection and refraction, wave guides,  and generation of electromagnetic radiation (retarded potential). As time permits, topics will be drawn from antennas, relativistic electrodynamics, four vectors, Lorentz, and transformation of fields based on the interest of the class.  At the level of Classical Electromagnetic Radiation by Heald and Marion or the more advanced chapters of Introduction to Electrodynamics by Griffiths.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PHYS 2217/PHYS 2218, or PHYS 2213/PHYS 2214. AEP 3200 recommended. Corequisite: AEP 4200 or appropriate mathematics course(s) that cover complex analysis, vector calculus, Fourier transforms and techniques for studying boundary value problems recommended.
