This course presents mathematical method of vector analysis as well as Maxwell eqautions of electromagnetic fields.
According to lectures, this exercise course presents how to use vector analysis for solving electromagnetic problems based on the Maxwell equations.
The aim of this course is to understand the basics of electromagnetics through practical problems.
This course aims to understand classical electromagnetics through vector analysis and the exercise course aims to solve practical problems by both theorems based on the Maxwell equation and vector analysis.
