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
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.
1. Derivation and interpretation of Maxwell's equations.
2. Linear differential equations.
3. Boundary, edge and radiation conditions.
4. Radiation from a dipole.
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.
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).
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".
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.
Students should contact with lecturers in advance by e-mail. The office hour is typically from 16:30 to 18:00 on Tuesdays.
