# Details for the Course Syllabus for Course EITN80F valid from Spring 2018

General
Aim
• The course provides a deep and broad understanding of electromagnetic theory. It complements the basic course in key areas related to electromagnetic waves and the interaction between moving charged particles and electromagnetic fields. It also gives the relativistic description of electrodynamics, with the aim of providing a basic understanding of accelerator physics. The course discusses techniques for measurements of electromagnetic fields in experiment and technology.
Contents
• Areas covered include: Maxwell equations, multipolutvecklingar, relativistic transformation of electromagnetic fields, motion of charged particles in electromagnetic fields, radiation from accelerating charges, Waveguides, resonant cavities, the measurement of electromagnetic fields.
Knowledge and Understanding
• For a passing grade the doctoral student must
• master the Maxwell equations and the mathematical methods used in the solution of electromagnetic problems
be able to treat the motion of charged relativistic particle in electromagnetic fields
determine the electromagnetic fields caused by accelerating charged particles
understand the principles of particle accelerators
determine the electromagnetic fields that can propagate in various types of metallic waveguides
understand the concepts waveguide, phase and group velocity and cut-off frequency of waveguides
to determine the electromagnetic fields that can exist in the resonant cavities
understand different methods for measurements of electromagnetic fields and the physical limitations of these methods
Competences and Skills
• For a passing grade the doctoral student must
• to assess the mathematical and numerical methods suitable for the analysis of various types of time-dependent electromagnetic problems
to determine which methods are possible to measure the electric and magnetic fields in given frequency ranges and geometries
assess and design the microwave for accelerators
able to make reasonable estimates of electromagnetic fields and waves with the help of physical rules of thumb
