Electromagnetism III University of Tsukuba
Wave equation, propagation, polarization, reflection, transmission, radiation, and scattering will be studied. Topics include: variable formed wave eq., transverse electromagnetic modes (in Lossy media), linear/circular polarization, different incidence issues in Lossy media with multiple interfaces, electromagnetic theorems and principles, etc.
The lecture covers advanced topics on the wave equation and its solution in rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates. Electromagnetic wave propagation and polarization is introduced. Reflection and transmission at normal and oblique incidences are considered, along with depolarization of the wave due to reflection and transmission and an introduction to metamaterials (especially those with negative index of refraction, referred to as double negative, DNG). The auxiliary vector potentials and their use toward the construction of solutions for radiation and scattering problems are discussed. The theorems of duality, uniqueness, image, reciprocity, reaction, volume and surface equivalences, induction, and physical and physical optics equivalents are introduced and applied.

This course is based on the completion of undergraduate electromagnetics.
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.
