We study in this paper the electromagnetic field generated in a
conductor by an alternating current density. The resulting
interface problem (see Bossavit (1993)) between the metal and the
dielectric medium is treated by a mixed–FEM and BEM coupling
method. We prove that our BEM-FEM formulation is well posed and
that it leads to a convergent Galerkin method.
