About the course

The objective of the course is to deepen the student’s knowledge of electromagnetism. The course begins with in-depth studies of electrostatic and magnetostatic problems. The connection between electrodynamics and special relativity is treated. The laws of reflection and transmission of plane waves at a plane interface are derived. Transmission lines and waveguides with TEM-, TE- and TM-modes are studied. Retarded potentials are introduced and are used to calculate radiation from antennae.
