PHY422: Electricity and Magnetism II
Review of vector algebra and calculus (Grad, div, curl in several coordinate systems, Surface and volume integrals, integral theorems)
Basic electrostatics (Coulomb's law, Electric field, Potential, Charge distributions, conductors, Gauss' law, Laplace and Poisson equations)
Laplace's equation in two variables (Boundary conditions, separation of variables, Fourier series, harmonic functions)
Dielectric media (Displacement field, polarization, Susceptibility, permittivity, dielectric constant)
Electrostatic energy (Discrete and continuous charge distributions, Forceenergy relations)
Conductive media (Current and current density, continuity equation, Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws)
Basic magnetostatics (Lorentz force, Force and torque on currents, BiotSavart law, Ampere's law, Fields of current distributions)
Magnetic media (Magnetic moments, magnetization, Susceptibility, permeability)
Induction (Faraday's law, Lenz's law, Self and mutualinductance, Transformers, circuits)
Maxwell's equations (Displacement current, Wave equation, planewave solutions, Poynting vector, energy).
