This course focuses on the electronic properties of solids, especially quantum mechanical properties. Solid is a many-body system consisting of electrons and nuclei. Despite only two ingredients, the electrons in solid show rich states and physical properties. In this course, we learn basic concepts and theoretical methods to study the electronic states in the solid.
This course starts with the networking session of the students enrolled in the School of Science followed by two rounds with more practical experience of science through lectures or seminars in four smaller groups divided according to the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Sciences in the School of Science. It emphasizes the importance of self thinking, communication and discussion between students and instructors, or by students themselves. Also it provides an opportunity for students to think what is learning, and furthermore to consider their own future direction.
This course presents mathematical method of vector analysis as well as Maxwell eqautions of electromagnetic fields. The aim of this course is to understand the basics of electromagnetics through practical problems.
Excercise on introductory electromagnetism for freshmen. Coulomb law, Biot-Savart law, Gauss law, Faraday law, Ampere-Maxwell law, Maxwell equations.
Following Fundamentals of Electromagnetism 1, this course covers static magnetic fields, changing electromagnetic fields, Maxwell’s equations, and electromagnetic waves.Electromagnetism is important for understanding nature, and is essential for the study of science, engineering, life sciences, and other specialized courses. Students will learn the basic laws of electromagnetism in vacuum, and their mathematical descriptions. This will allow them to understand general electromagnetic phenomena as well as allow them to solve general problems in electromagnetism.Fundamentals of optics and elementary particles are also key topics that will be covered in this course.
This course teaches the basics of static electric and magnetic fields in vacuum, starting with Coulomb’s force law for charges. Electromagnetism is important for understanding nature, and is essential for the study of science, engineering, life sciences, and other specialized courses. Students will understand how charges and current produce electric and magnetic fields, respectively, and their mathematical descriptions. This will allow them to understand static electromagnetic phenomena as well as allow them to solve basic problems in electromagnetism.
