The course provides a central knowledge of advanced electrodynamics. Focus is on the use of advanced mathematical physics tools to solve complex electrodynamics problems relevant for several fields in physics. Content: Maxwell’s equations, conservation laws and electromagnetic potentials. Wave propagation in media. Simple radiating systems of moving charges. Selected advanced topics, such as relativistic formulation, radiation by moving charges, radiation damping, quantum optics.


To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.

However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.

There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
