Electricity and Magnetism

Class Details

  • Session: Spring 2012 (1/17-5/04)
  • Instructor: Martin Greven (e-mail: greven @ physics.umn.edu)
  • Time: 1430 MWF
  • Location: Phys 210

Class Description

The course emphasizes a mathematically sophisticated development of Maxwell?s equations and their applications. This course develops the skills of solving the difficult problems that arise in complex electromagnetic interactions using advanced mathematical techniques. The fundamental concepts of electromagnetism such as Gauss? Law, the Biot-Savart Law, Ampere's Law, and Faraday?s Law will be revisited from a more sophisticated point of view and using more advanced mathematics than in introductory courses. The innate connection between electromagnetism and special relativity will be addressed. Mathematics beyond the prerequisite mathematics courses are developed as required. There will be an emphasis on vector calculus such as the use of Laplace?s equation. Knowledge of physics learned in Physics 2303, 2403H, or 2503 is assumed. A discussion section will give you the opportunity to discuss your conceptual understanding and practice your problem solving skills in collaboration with other students.
