Cursusdoelen
  • After completing this course, the student should understand the structure and central concepts of classical electromagnetic theory, building on the knowledge gained in Electromagnetism 1. This includes an understanding of bound current, H-field, magnetic properties of linear media, Faraday's and Ampère's laws, the complete Maxwell's equations in differential form, potential of the time-dependent electromagnetic field, energy of the electromagnetic field, Poynting's theorem.
  • The student should be able to apply the above knowledge, the formalism and methods to solve problems in electromagnetism.
  • The student should be familiar with the features and properties of electromagnetic waves, and should be able to apply this knowledge to simple problems dealing with refraction and interference of electromagnetic waves in a variety of materials.
  • The student should know the covariant formulation of classical electromagnetic theory, and be able to use this knowledge to (Lorentz) transform electromagnetic fields and potentials between different inertial frames (special relativity).
  • The student should be able to apply simple programming methods to computationally solve problems involving electromagnetic fields and potentials.

The level of the problems is defined by the book (Griffiths) used with the course.
