Maxwell's equations, Fresnel's equations, the equation of continuity and Poynting vector applications are reviewed. Scalar and vector potentials, the gauge transformation, and the inhomogeneous wave equation are discussed. Retarded potentials with applications to dipole radiation, the half-wave antenna, directed arrays and the diffraction grating are introduced. Wave guide and transmission line theory are discussed. Lienard-Wiechert potentials are introduced and applied to radiation from an accelerated charge.
