PHYS 503 Electromagnetism (Graduate)

This theoretical and problem-solving course focuses on the development and application of the integral and differential forms of Maxwell’s equations from phenomenological observations, culminating in the electromagnetic wave equations. Topics include potential theory, static and dynamic electromagnetic field equations in vacuum and media, and electromagnetic waves with select applications.
