This is a classical course of applied electromagnetics where starting from Maxwell equations the student will carefully analyze some of its particular solutions: plane waves, guided waves and an introduction to radiated waves. The characterization of wave propagation in the different cases will be one of the main aspects of the course.
The course is divided in 4 units:
1: The electromagnetic model: Maxwell equations
2: Electromagnetic propagation in an free medium: plane waves
3: Propagation in confined media: guided waves
4: Introduction to electromagnetic radiation
