  • The student will deepen his/her knowledge of the fundamental principles of electromagnetic wave propagation in linear continuous media, and know how utilize to numerical methods in the solution of electromagnetic wave propagation problems.
  • Repetition of the Maxwell equations and boundary conditions. Constitutive relations and different models. Energy relations. Time harmonic fields. Plane waves, polarization. Plane wave propagation in complex materials (isotropic, anisotropic, gyrotropic, bi-isotropic). Reflection and transmission in two and three dimensions. Beams and the paraxial approximation. Wave propagation in inhomogeneous materials. Numerical methods e.g. finite difference methods and raytracing.
