Students learn to explain fundamental formulas, relations, and methods related to the theory of time-dependent electromagnetic fields. They can assess the principal behavior and characteristics of quasistationary and fully dynamic fields with regard to respective sources. They can describe the properties of complex electromagnetic fields by means of superposition of solutions for simple fields. The students are aware of applications for the theory of time-dependent electromagnetic fields and are able to explicate these.
Specifically students learn to apply a variety of procedures in order to solve the diffusion and the wave equation for general time-dependent field problems. They can assess the principal effects of given time-dependent sources of fields and analyze these quantitatively. They can deduce meaningful quantities for the characterization of fully dynamic fields (wave impedance, skin depth, Poynting-vector, radiation resistance, etc.) from given fields and interpret them with regard to practical applications.
