Teaching Assistant :
   Kim, Jwa Soon (Office: Rm #117/Bldg #31, Phone: 880-8336, k12481@snu.ac.kr)

Course Description :
  This course focuses on the electromagnetic theories as a basis for plasma engineering, nuclear fusion, radiation and nuclear engineering. Specific topics will include vector algebra and calculus; electrostatics in material media for Coulombís Law, Gaussís Law, and boundary-value problems; steady electric currents for Ohm's law and Kirchhoff's law; magnetostatics in magnetic media for Ampereís Law, Biot-Savart law, and vector potential; time-varying electromagnetics for Faradayís Law and Maxwell's equation. This course introduces basic principles and technological issues relevant to plasma and fusion energy generations and their practical uses as efficient processing tools in materials and environmental industries as well as a limitless large-scale electric power source in the future.
