Course Objectives The aim of this course is to focuse on both understanding and providing the ability of solving basic electromagnetic engineering problems.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • • Ability to both configure and obtain the compact solutions and results of basic problems related with electromagnetic waves by learning how the logic of mathematical and physical sciences are considered in correct sense, • Ability to comprehend fundamentals of radiation and scattering problems with examples, • Ability to use numerical methods such as the Moment Method, • Ability to understand how the same equation sets are used to solve both the forward (radiation) and inverse (scattering) problems with the application of necessary theorems and approximations to the canonical objects such as cylinders, spheres and wedges, • Ability to understand definitions and computation methods for scattering are introduced through scattering amplitude and cross sections and concepts are applied with radar examples, • Ability to comprehend the advanced analyses of others which may be met in the literature and in practical aspects of scattering and inverse problems, • Ability to write MATLAB programs for scattering and inverse problems.
Course Content Fundamental concepts and theorems; wave equations and their solution; scattering of waves by conducting and dielectric objects, cross sections and scattering amplitude, radar equations, Rayleigh scattering, Born approximation, physical optics approximation; integral equations; method of moments; inverse scattering.
