Intended learning outcomes
After completion of the course the student shall be able to
- explain the constitutive relations for various complex media
- explain the concepts of reciprocal and non‐reciprocal media
- derive dispersion relations for complex media and determine the wavenumbers and polarization states for the eigenwaves
- analyze scattering at canonical interfaces between complex and simple media and between different complex media
