Electricity and Magnetism II 3 s.h.
This is the second semester of a two-semester sequence covering electricity and magnetism. This semester will cover Maxwell's equations, electrodynamics, electromagnetic waves, radiation, and special relativity, corresponding to Ch. 7-12 in the textbook (Griffiths: Introduction to Electrodynamics). The course will focus on building a strong conceptual understanding of electrodynamics and developing skills and experience in problem solving. This course utilizes vector calculus extensively. Reading and homework assignments will be given in class and on the course web page. Three weekly lectures are given by the professor. Grades are based upon weekly homework assignments, two midterm exams, and a final exam.
