Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Interpret important phenomena involving electromagnetic interactions
  • Realize the beauty and internal consistency of Maxwell's equations
  • Predict the consequences of Maxwell's equations in simple but important situations
  • Choose to solve problems with static and time-dependent fields
  • Manipulate differential operators (gradient, curl, divergence, laplacian)
  • Contextualise conservation laws for physical quantities both in local and global form

Transversal skills

  • Continue to work through difficulties or initial failure to find optimal solutions.
