Course description

Elektromagnetno polje is a required course for third-year undergraduates in the FMF physics program. These notes are from the winter semester of the 2020-21 academic year, when the course was taught by professor Miha Ravnik (lecture) and asst. professor Martin Klanjšek (exercises). Material covered in the course includes:

  • electrostatics
  • magnetostatics
  • Maxwell’s equations in free space and in matter
  • frequency-dependent models of the dielectric constant
  • an introduction to the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of electrodynamics
  • an introduction relativistic electrodynamics
