This is a 60h course on Electromagnetism
for graduate students either seeking the Master's or
PhD degree in Electrical Engineering. The course is
part of the Photonics curriculum of UFPE's Graduate
Program in Electrical Engineering (PPGEE). Relative to
a traditional undergraduate course on the subject,
PGEE936 employs a more in-depth mathematical
formulation to solve electromagnetic problems. The
mathematical tools include the use of Dirac's delta
function for localized sources, solution of
Poisson's and 2nd order non-homogeneous
differential equations by use of Green's functions in
3D space, use of special functions and concepts of
orthogonally for solving boundary value problems
either in electrostatics, magnetostatics or in
conducting media, as well as extensive use of vector
algebra. The course covers mostly static fields, and
use of the advanced mathematical tools for determining
those fields. The final part of the course is
dedicated to assembling Maxwell's equations for
dynamic fields and exploring the homogeneous and
non-homogeneous forms of the wave equation. Plane
waves, attenuation and dispersion are treated in the
final part of the course. The topics that compose
PGEE936 form the basis for more advanced
applications of the Eletromagnetic Theory. The
follow-up course offered by PPGEE-UFPE on this theme
is PGEE937 Fundamentals of Optics and Wave
Propagation. PGEE936 and PGEE937 together form the
foundations of Electromagnetics of static and dynamic
fields at the graduate level, in the Photonics
curriculum offered by PPGEE-UFPE.
