Prerequisites: * Analysis I
* principles of analysis of functions of multiple variabels
Target skills and knowledge: * Knowledge of the basic laws of static and slowly varying electromagnetic fields
* Knowledge of the basic laws of mechanical and electromagnetic waves
* Ability to solve in a quantitative way simple problems
* Ability to report critically on the laboratory experiences
Examination methods: * Written exam and possibly colloquium. Mandatory colloquium for marks above or equal to 28 and between 18 and 21, included, in the written exam. Test graded on 30. Test consists of:
- 1 problem on electromagnetic fields
- 1 problem on waves
- multiple choice questions
- demonstration of a theorem
The presence during the laboratory epxeriences is mandatory and a report on one of the laboratory experiences will be included in the final evaluation.
Assessment criteria: * Correct use of the fundamental laws presented in the lectures
* Correctness of the numerical results
* Logical correctness of the demonstration
* Ability to apply the knwledges gained during the classes to the solution of problems not already encountered during the course
* Ability to discuss critically the results of the laboratory experiences
Course unit contents: I Part: electromagnetism
