### Electromagnetism II University of Tsukuba

#### Course Overview

Time-varing/time-harmonic electromagnetic fields and electrical properties of matter based on Maxwell’s equations will be studied. Topics include: variable forms of Maxwell’s eq., dielectrics/magnetics-polarization/magnetization-permittivity/permeability, etc.

#### Learning Achievement

The lecture covers classical topics on
- Maxwell’s equations
- Constitutive parameters and relations
- Circuit relations, boundary conditions
- Power and energy relations.
- Also, we will discuss that the electrical properties of matter for both direct-current and alternating-current, including an update on superconductivity.

#### Competence

"Knowledge creativity", "Engineering basics", "Basic scholastic ability", "Expertise", "Ethics", "Practical insight and problem solving ability"

#### Course prerequisites

This course is based on the completion of undergraduate electromagnetics.

#### Grading Philosophy

Grading will be carried out in the following two phases, and students fulfilling the criteria below will pass.
(1) Regarding the items cited in relation to course objectives, simple problems based on
text examples will be given as practice exercises and homework. Submit the above
and achieve 70% (out of 100%) for every item.
(2) Solve general problems in the examination and achieve 60% (out of 100%). Note that grades from A+ to C are to be determined based on final examination scores.
