### Course Description

We study properties of eigenfunctions, such as trigonometric functions, Bessel functions, Legendre functions as solutions of linear differential equations, which appear in various subjects of electric and electronic engineering such as electromagnetics, plasma physics, and quantum mechanics. As applications of these eigenfunctions, we also study Fourier series, Fourier transform, and Laplace transform.

### Grading

The grade will be evaluated based on reports (5points x 13times) and a term examination(100points). If the total points exceed 100 points, the grade is given as 100 points.

### Course Goals

We learn mathematical methods to describe spatial and temporal evolutions of various physical phenomena.
