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.


In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
