### Outline of lecture

Derivation and interpretation of Maxwell's equations, radiation from a dipole, direct integration of the field equations, field equivalence theorem, boundary, edge and radiation conditions, solutions for homogeneous equations, canonical problems sloved by separation of variables and diffraction from a half plane or a cylinder

### Purpose of lecture

The objective of this course is to provide the basic methodology in the boundary value problems of electromagnetic waves. Some canonical problems in electromagnetic wave scattering are solved. Important concept of "field equivalence theorem" is explained. The following topics are included.

### Plan of lecture

1. Derivation and interpretation of Maxwell's equations.
2. Linear differential equations.
3. Boundary, edge and radiation conditions.
5. Solutions for homogeneous equations.
6. Canonical problems sloved by separation of variables.
7. Diffraction from a half plane.
8. Diffraction from a cylinder.
9. Direct integration the field equations.
10. Field equivalence theorem.

### Textbook and reference

Lecture note and copies of pages in classical books by Stratton J. A.(1941),
Harrington R.G.(1961) and by Segkiguchi T.(1976) are available during the course. Additional references are:
Yamashita E. ed. "Analysis Methods for Electromagnetic Wave Problems" Artech House(1990).
Yamashita E.ed. "Application of Electromagnetic Wave Analysis",IEICE Japan(1993).

### Related and/or prerequisite courses

Students should have completed courses of "Electricity and magnetism" and "Electromagnetic waves" in the undergraduate course or its equivalence. It is also preferable to have finished"
electromagnetic wave transmission and the radio law".

### Evaluation

Grade is based upon examination to evaluate understanding of the basic methodology in the boundary value problems of electromagnetic waves in the end of term.
