PHYS 252 - Int. Electricity & Magnetism
In the introductory part of this course, vector functions and electrostatics are covered, followed by reacquaintance of the students with the concepts of surface integrals (divergence), line integrals (curl), and gradients. The manifestation of the magnetic field is treated from a relativistic point of view, including transformations of electric fields, magnetic fields, and forces into inertial frames of reference. This background leads to the development of Maxwell's equations and the ideas of electromagnetic wave theory. Three lecture hours and one tutorial hour.
