ENEE 680: Electromagnetic Theory
Mathematical techniques are developed for solving one-,
two-, and three-dimensional electrostatic and magnetostatic problems with
and without boundaries. Examples are solved in detail for all cases.
ENEE 381 or equivalent. An undergraduate
course in Electromagnetics at the junior or senior level.
The student should have a good mathematical
background in vector calculus, product solution of second order differential
equations, and complex variables. The electromagnetic course requirements
above implies knowledge of Maxwells equations and the ability to solve
simple standard static problems.
