This is a formal-theoretical development of classical electrodynamics. It will build on material mastered in previous core courses (e.g., PHYS 4010 - Electromagnetism and Quantum Mechanics). The course will go deeper into curvilinear coordinates, electric and magnetic fields in matter, Maxwell's equations in matter, electromagnetic waves, Green's function method of electromagnetic waves, guided waves, antennae, potential formulation, retarded potential, Lagrangian formalism of special relativity and relativistic electrodynamics.
