The course focuses on Computational Electromagnetics numerical methods (volume integral equation in the coordinate and in the reciprocal space) being alternative to the Finite Element and Finite Difference methods, which are widely used in commercial software packages. The methods appear to be superior to the named ones and can provide an additional physical insight into certain classes of problems in nanophotonics. Students will be given theoretical lectures and will be offered several projects, which include both coding and analysis of physical phenomena.
