Aim
The purpose of the course is to give a coherent description of the basic theory as well as of applications of electromagnetic theory. Emphasis will be on physical insight coupled to the use of mathematical models. The course is also intended to throw light upon the numerous applications of electromagnetic field theory such as optics, electronics, communication technology, chemistry, and biology.
