The properties of electromagnetic fields will be explored using a variety of mathematical tools (in particular, vector and differential calculus). Topics will include: charge and current distributions, electro- and magnetostatics, materials, electrodynamics, conservation principles, electromagnetic waves and radiation. This module builds on knowledge and skills acquired in prior coursework by developing techniques for solving more advanced problems in electromagnetism.
