All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials. Additionally, the lecturer will refer foreign students to the corresponding literature in English, as well as give them the possibility of taking the associated exams in English.

- acquire operational knowledge from methods used to solve problems in ED
- acquire an overview of the use of ED in modern areas of physics

COURSE DESCRIPTION AND SYLLABUS
Lectures per weeks (15 weeks in total):
The Fall semester
1.-2. week - vector analysis (gradient, divergence, curl)
3.-4. week - electrostatics (Gauss law, scalar potential), electrostatics with conductors, energy in electrostatic fields
5. week - Laplace and Poisonn equation, method of images and multipole expansion
6.-7. week - electrostatics in the presence of dielectrics (atomic polarizability, polarization, field of a polarized object, dielectric displacement, susceptibility, macroscopic and microscopic fields, energy of electrostatic fields in the presence of dielectrics)
8.-9. week - magnetostatics (Biot-Savart law, Lorentz force, vector potential); magnetostatics in the presence of materials (paramagnetism, diamagnetism, ferromagnetism, auxiliary field H, magnetic permeability and susceptibility.
10. week - Faradey's law of induction, electromotive force, inductivity
11.-12. week - Maxwell equations, Poynting theorem, Poynting vector
13. week - electromagnetic waves (waves in vacuum, systems with dielectrics, reflection and refraction), model frequency dependent dielectric response
14. week - formulation of classical electrodynamics via scalar and vector potential
15. week - ED and Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein postulates, Lorentz transformations, and energy-momentum relation.
