    Goals

    Upon successful completion of the course, students with their math infrastructure, planar, cylindrical and spherical structures with a flat perfectly conducting or lossy dielectric scattering problems, including an analytical point of view to solve the problems of all the other electromagnetic scattering and light of the solutions obtained with the help of computer simulations will be capable of verification that.. In addition, students using the method of moment, and the forward scattering radiation antennas will have the ability to solve problems, as well as numerical. Students will be able to use the information from their technology with ease
