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 窶拉ield equivalence theorem窶 is explained. The following topics are included.

Plan of lecture

01. Radiation from a source.
02. Dipole, Uniqueness, Poynting Theorem, Far field.
03. Linear differential equations.
04. Derivation and interpretation of Maxwell窶冱 equations.
05. Direct integration of the field equations.
06. Field equivalence theorem.
07. Boundary, edge and radiation conditions.
08. Solutions for homogeneous equations.
09. Canonical problems sloved by separation of variables.
10. Diffraction from a half plane.
11. Diffraction from a cylinder.

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;

Related and/or prerequisite courses

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


Grade is based upon examination (about 80%) in the end of term and homework reports (about 20%) during the term.
