I’ve now posted a first set of notes for the antenna theory course that I am taking this term at UofT.
Unlike most of the other classes I have taken, I am not attempting to take comprehensive notes for this class. The class is taught on slides that match the textbook so closely, there is little value to me taking notes that just replicate the text. Instead, I am annotating my copy of textbook with little details instead. My usual notes collection for the class will contain musings of details that were unclear, or in some cases, details that were provided in class, but are not in the text (and too long to pencil into my book.)
The notes linked above include:
- Reading notes for chapter 2 (Fundamental Parameters of Antennas) and chapter 3 (Radiation Integrals and Auxiliary Potential Functions) of the class text.
- Geometric Algebra musings. How to do formulate Maxwell’s equations when magnetic sources are also included (those modeling magnetic dipoles).
- Some problems for chapter 2 content.
