FUNDAMENTAL MATHEMATICS CONCEPTS RELATING TO ELECTROMAGNETICS
You will have 180 days to access this on-line course.
This course is designed for people wishing to refresh or to learn the fundamental mathematical concepts that are used to describe electromagnetic wave behavior. The modules address all of the basic math concepts covered in a traditional undergraduate electromagnetics course in an ECE curriculum. These concepts include Vector Basics, Integral Vector Calculus, Differential Vector Calculus, Fundamental Coordinate Systems and Complex Numbers. After completing these modules, a person should have sufficient math skills to pursue graduate studies in electromagnetics and/or be able to decipher the math presented in an upper-level text on the subject.
