A system of partial differential equations, the Maxwell equations, consitutes the basic concept of electro dynamics. The lecture will consider fundamental aspects of the mathematical theory of these differential equations. The potential theoretical approach as well as weak formulations of corresponding boundary value problems will be presented. Especially the theory of the sacttering of time harmonic electromagnetic waves will be discussed.
