Content and learning outcomes
Numerical methods for analyzing scattering of electromagnetic waves from objects with complicated shape
Intended learning outcomes
After completion of the course the student shall be able to
- explain briefly the Fredholm theory for integral equations
- derive electromagnetic representation formulas, from generalized Green formulas,
- derive line, surface, and volume integral equations
- discretize integral equations into matrix equations
- explain some methods for improved and accelerated convergence
Literature and preparations
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- EXA1 - Examination, 6.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
- Electrostatic or magnetostatic problem
- Thin‐wire antenna
- Scattering from metallic or homogeneous object
- Scattering from heterogeneous object
Other requirements for final grade
Satisfactory performance in all home‐assignments. Oral presentation of one assignment.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
