ESoA - Courses
Spot Trailers

This course lasts 6 days, i.e. one day longer than other ESoA courses, comprising a total of 50 hours

of lectures and exercises. The lectures start on Monday 9th May and finish on Saturday 14th May.


Course Description:
The goal of this course is to explain the mathematical methods used in computational antenna analysis 
and to provide students with mathematical background necessary for advanced antenna engineering and 
electromagnetic software development. This course can also serve as a mathematical introduction to other
ESoA courses. The course will cover different approaches to solving wave equations, various wave 
representations, and mathematical theorems used to simplify the original electromagnetic problem. In this 
sense, the aim of this course is to help students gain a deeper understanding of which field representation 
is suited for a given complex electromagnetic problem.


The topics of the course are:
 1.Fundamental theorems framed in the antenna analysis
 2.Complex analysis 
 3.Construction of solutions
 4.Waves: scalar wave equation
 5.Fields: vector wave equation
 6.Asymptotic evaluation of integrals
 7.Periodic structures


Course schedule: 50 hours
Credits: the course gives 3 ECTS credits
Availability: 25 students
Prerequisites: electromagnetics and basic antenna knowledge

Student grant information:

It was extremely hard to select the winners of the grants due to quality of all applications, but finally we have decided to give the grants to the following applicants:
1. Michele Beccaria ( Politecnico di Torino)
2. Husnain Ali Kayani (University of Catholic Louvain)
3. Carlos Sanchez-Cabello ( University Carlos III of Madrid)
4. Michele Borgese (University of Pisa)

Four grants were sponsored by IDS, Italy (one grant), CST, Germany (one grant) and University of Zagreb, Croatia (two grants).
How to reach:
  The easiest way to reach Dubrovnik is by plane. Since Dubrovnik is a famous tourist destination, during spring 
  and summer airline companies offer direct flights to Dubrovnik from most big European cities. Low-cost carriers 
  which fly to Dubrovnik include Germanwings, Tuifly,, and others. The full flight schedule

  for all companies with flights to Dubrovnik can be found here.

  Alternatively, one can also fly to the city of Split, approximately 220km north of Dubrovnik, and connect by bus. The 
  return ticket from Split to Dubrovnik costs about 40 EUR, including the transfer from the airport to the bus station 
  (tickets are bought separately). 

  Accommodation is not included in the course fee. The organizers have booked a limited number of rooms at special 
  discount prices at hotel VIS (***), just accross the road from where the course will be held.
More details about the offer and prices can be found in the Accommodation form below.
