|Detailed Description and Outline
Field equations: definitions of field vectors: E, B, D and H. Lorentz force relation; electrical and magnetic polarizations and constitutive parameters; electric and magnetic currents and conductivity parameters; boundary conditions at the interface between two media and across surface currents; Poynting theorem in real and complex forms and energy relations; complex permittivity and permeability
Plane wave: in homogeneous media: reduction to vector Helmholtz equation; separation of variables; uniform and nonuniform plane waves; wave impedance; reflection and refraction at oblique incidence; fields of infinite current sheets; polarization properties of waves
Fields in waveguides: dispersion; phase, group and energy velocities; attenuation; resonant cavity; inhomogeneously filled waveguides; transverse resonance
Antennas: dipoles; radiation patterns; approximate analysis of some antennas
||It is assumed that the student has a basic knowldge of vector analysis, complex varibles, Maxwell's equations and uniform plane waves.|
