'Electromagnetic Theory' is a course offered in the third semester of B. Tech. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

Unit 1

Vectors and co-ordinate systems: Cartesian, cylindrical and spherical co-ordinate systems- scalar and vector fields.

Electric and Magnetic fields: line, surface and volume integrals - Coulomb’s law - Gauss’s law - Biot-Savart’s law - Ampere’s circuital law – applications - boundary conditions for electric and magnetic fields - Lorentz force equation.

Unit 2

Maxwell’s equations: gradient, curl and divergence - Maxwell’s equation in integral form - Law of conservation of charge - Maxwell’s equation in differential form - continuity equation - boundary condition for electromagnetic fields.

Electric potential - Poisson’s and Laplace’s equations – capacitance - energy stored - magnetic scalar and vector potentials - magnetic circuits – inductance - energy stored-conductance.

Unit 3

Uniform plane waves and sinusoidally varying waves in time domain and in free space – polarization - power flow and Poynting vector - wave parameters - plane waves in material media - skin effect - reflection and transmission of uniform plane waves - normal and oblique incidence in conductor and dielectric interfaces.
