    Students will be able to apply vector calculus operations and concepts to the computation of electromagnetic quantities, including total charge and currents (from densities), work on charges in electric fields, circulation of magnetic fields, and electrostatic potential.
Analytical Methods for Electromagnetics Engineering
E C E 219 ( 1 Credits )
Reviews basic calculations in electromagnetic engineering upon which all higher level concepts and physical model construction are based. It emphasizes quantitative calculation mastery in three spatial dimensions and/or time-frequency analysis. Applies analysis tools from vector calculus and complex exponentials to the calculation and prediction of electrical system properties. Examples include calculating electric and magnetic fields, electric potentials, or electric flux from change or current sources, and calculating the amplitudes and phases of electric or magnetic fields due to time-oscillating sources.
