10. Electromagnetic field by accelerating particles

Every students are encouraged to read handouts of the lectures which are uploaded on the following web site in advance.

Handouts are provided in each of the lectures.The handouts can be downloaded from the following web site.

•Additional Reading
Introduction to Electrodynamics 4th ed. (D. J. Griffinths, Pearson)

•Grade Assessment
The achievement will be evaluated by a midterm exam and a term exam. The weights of the marks of the midterm and term exams are 50 % and 50 %, respectively. Those who mark more than 60 points out of 100 points are passed.


•Contacting Faculty
Questions are accepted right after the lectures at the lecture room or the office. Students should make an appointment for for the question by telephone or email in advance.
