Electromagnetism 2 - Fall 2016

This course is the second semester of electricity and magnetism at the undergraduate physics level. Time enters our theory of electromagnetic fields and we arrive at Maxwell's equationsthe complete classical theory of electromagnetism. The arrival happens pretty early in the term, and the bulk of our work will be to study electromagnetic waves and radiation, culminating in a discussion of the special theory of relativity.
