Electromagnetic Dynamics I

Toshiro MATSUMURA Professor

Department: Institute of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Class Time: 2011 Fall Friday
Recommended for: Electrical and Electronic Engineering students and Information Engineering students

close Course Overview

Course Aims

Electromagnetic dynamics is one of the most important fields for all the natural science major students. Since electromagnetic dynamics can be applied to many fields of advanced physics or high technology devices, I would like all of you to understand the basics in this lecture.

Main focuses of this lecture are electrostatic field in vacuum and electrostatic field with dielectric bodies.
