PHYS 3070 - Electricity and Magnetism II (3)

A brief review of PHYS 3060  (Electricity and Magnetism I), including a review of Maxwell’s Equations, followed by a study of energy and momentum of electromagnetic fields; plane waves (boundary conditions, absorption and dispersion, and wave-guides); potential formulation; gauge transformation; moving fields and retardation effects; dipole radiation; radiation reaction; relativity; relativistic dynamics; field tensor. Many of the concepts studied in this course, such as electromagnetic waves and radiation fields, will become important guides for practicing experimental physics. A clear understanding of field theory, gauge transformations, and relativity will create a foundation for pursuing theoretical physics. (Three lecture hours per week)
