Description: Systems affected by electromagnetic fields and waves are all around us: cellular phones, wireless routers, computers, motors and generators, power grids, etc. Electromagnetic theory is a fundamental physical basis on which these systems operate. This course provides a physical and mathematical description of basic electromagnetic theory. Vector calculus will be reviewed as a foundation of electromagnetic theory. The basics of electrostatic and magnetostatic fields will be discussed including fields in materials and devices. The time-varying Maxwell's equations will be developed as an all-encompassing description of electromagnetic phenomena. Maxwell's equations will be applied to characterize wave propagation in materials, transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas.
