|About the course:|
|This is the first of the two core E&M courses in our graduate curriculum. The textbook will closely be followed throughout the course.|
|Exams & Grading:||"Cheat sheets" will not be allowed during the exams,
but you will be provided with sufficient information for solving the
problems without memorization.
There is an attendance requirement for this course: A student may not miss more than 6 hours of class or recitation in order to pass the course. Further absences may be compensated by completing assignments which will take much longer time than the corresponding class time.
