Prerequisite: PHYS 530, PHYS 600 or equivalent.
View Additional Prerequisites

This is a core course in electromagnetism intended for all Physics graduate students at Purdue. The material covered is at a somewhat more advanced level than the typical undergraduate course on the subject. Topics will range from electrostatics to wave propagation. Although a certain knowledge of mathematical methods for Physics (like for instance the material covered in PHYS-600 and PHYS-601 at Purdue) would be very useful, the course is mostly self-contained.
