Language of instructionGerman


AbstractThis course is focused on the generation and propagation of electromagnetic fields. Based on Maxwell's equations we will derive the wave equation and its solutions. Specifically, we will discuss fields and waves in free space, refraction and reflection at plane interfaces, dipole radiation and Green functions, vector and scalar potentials, as well as gauge transformations.
