PS 172: Electromagnetic Energy Transfer

Course Number and Title: PS 172 (Electromagnetic Energy Transfer)
Date Revised: Oct. 8, 2010
Number of Units: 3
Prerequisite: PS 171

Course Description:
This course is the second part of the classical electromagnetism course. It focuses on the fundamental theory of electrodynamics. Topics in this course include electromagnetic waves, potentials and fields, radiation, electrodynamics, relativity in electromagnetism, and relevant applications of electromagnetic waves (e.g., scattering principles and numerical modeling of the propagation of electromagnetic waves in matter).
