Course Contents 
This course consists of two parts. In the first part, three basic electromagnetic processes are considered, namely: radiation from arbitrary currentdistributions; scattering of given incident fields by arbitrary inhomogeneous objects; imaging and inversion of objects using the scattered field data. We derive, and analyze in Matlab the fullvectorial threedimensional electromagnetic radiation formulae in frequency and time domains. The following subjects are also discussed: numerical solution of the scattering problem, inverse source, and inverse scattering problems. The second part of the course is devoted to the guided waves, where the modal structure of the electromagnetic field in open and closed planar waveguides is analyzed.
