Homework: Will be assigned on-line on this web page and collected on Tuesdays (unless otherwise stated) --- completed assignments should be dropped in the ECE 350 drop-box (#34) located on the west side of the 3rd floor of ECEB by 5 PM on the due date.
The assignments and their solutions will be posted below in pdf format (if you are having font error issues, please update your Acrobat Reader).
No late homework will be accepted (except when special permission is granted by your instructor before the due date).
This semester some of the homework assignments will include problems to be solved using "partially completed" Mathematica notebooks to be provided to you. This is a new feature of the course that complements the ECE 329 Mathematica sections which were first introduced in Fall 2015. No prior experience with Mathematica will be required to complete these new ECE 350 assignments since partially completed notebooks to be provided will include syntax patterns that will be easy to learn and modify in order to complete the assignments. The objective of these exercises will be to gain a better insight about EM phenomena by taking advantage of graphics and display capabilities of Mathematica. As a by product you will gain a useful knowledge of Mathematica and what it can do for you in solving your engineering problems. Watching the following videos prior to starting your first Mathematica assignment will be very useful: Notebooks Methods to Get Started Basic Calculations Basic Graphics Making Interactive Models
All engineering students have free access to Mathematica via Citrix remote server. Please download and install the Citrix Receiver software for your personal computer from Citrix Download or Citrix Download for Linux to have free access to Mathematica outside the EWS labs.
