Electricity and Magnetism I



This course provides a vector-calculus based theoretical introduction to the fundamental concepts of electrostatics and magnetostatics using grad, div and curl in Cartesian, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems. Topics include the electric field, potential and electrostatics in the presence of matter. In magnetostatics, the magnetic field and vector potential are developed. Electromotive force and electromagnetic induction lead on to Maxwell's equations, which are discussed in detail.
