Course on advanced electromagnetism (May 2016)
An internationally renown lecturer, Prof. David Neilson (Professore ordinario di chiara fama, University of Camerino, Italy) presented a 20h course 'Advanced Electromagnetism' at the University of Antwerp, during first three weeks of May 2016.
This course was intended for all students who have completed an introductory course in Electromagnetism. The course introduced Maxwell’s equations, Conservation Laws, Plane Electromagnetic Waves, Radiative Systems, and, if there is time, Relativistic Electrodynamics. The emphasis had the mathematics following in the steps of the amazing physical phenomena and concepts.
Textbook: second half of Introduction to Electrodynamics, David J. Griffiths, Prentice Hall, 2013.
Students were issued a certificate, based on which 3 ECTS can be claimed (pending administrative approval). The evaluation was done during the course, through tasks and/or questioning. The course counted towards the international portfolio of the students (course will be in English, and Prof. Neilson is a native English speaker). For PhD students, the course was credited through doctoral study points.
The course on Advanced Electromagnetism has been scheduled at
Monday, May 9th
Tuesday, 10th and 17th
Wednesday, 11th and 18th
always at 15-19h, in room T135.
