## Syllabus

The syllabus ,contains information an outline syllabus and recommended texts
Lecture notes, tutorials, handouts, etc are available in two formats:
- pdf: these
require acroread or some other viewer.
- PostScript: these require ghostview or some other PostScript
previewer to see them onscreen.

They should be printable on any PostScript printer.

The PostScript versions should be identical to the
printed lecture notes.

## Lecture Notes

Any errors in the lecture notes (should!) have been corrected in these
online versions. If you find errors please let me know. The notes do not contain figures.
## N.B. 2013/14

This year the Electromagnetism Course is a full year 20 point course.
The first semester (Foundations) will follow closely the previous course
which students coped well with last year.
The second semester to be lectured by Dr R. J. Cole will follow in from the S1 course and develop further electromagnetic waves and physical optics.

I will distribute written notes (updated and corrected from last year's version). They will be available here electronically or from me in
hard copy, after the lecture has taken place. Students are encouraged
to take notes in the lectures as the structure of the lectures may be
more informal and a little different from the notes.

The first week's lectures cover material introduced in second year in
Dynamics and Vector Calculus and Physics 2B and it is important to revise this material as it is integral to the study of electromagnetism

**
Therefore the Tutorial Workshops
begin in Week 1 **

## Feedback on Hand-ins

## Other interesting stuff

* Here's a nice app written by one of last year's students which illustrates how the method of images works
*

* Here's some great MIT video lectures on Electromagnetism
which cover some of our topics at an introductory level
