Electromagnetic Fields, Forces and Motion: Course Description

Professor Markus Zahn at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology teaches 'Electromagnetic Fields, Forces and Motion' a free graduate-level OpenCourseWare. Students will study magnetic and electric quasistatic forms of Maxwell's equations as they relate to magnetization, conduction and dielectric boundary value problems. Other course topics include Maxwell's equations as they relate to boundary conditions, polarization, conduction and magnetization. Video demonstrations allow students to experience and observe theoretical concepts covered in the textbook, including the magnetic field of a line. The course also provides demonstrations of the theory and applications of lasers and optics technologies.

This course provides downloadable lecture notes, problem sets with solutions, exams with answers, and an online textbook with video demonstrations of the electromagnetism concepts covered, all for free online. To learn more, visit the electromagnetic fields, forces and flows course page.
