Asymptotics for large time of solutions to nonlinear system associated with the penetration of a magnetic field into a substance

Temur A. Jangveladze, Zurab V. Kiguradze (2010)

Applications of Mathematics

The nonlinear integro-differential system associated with the penetration of a magnetic field into a substance is considered. The asymptotic behavior as t of solutions for two initial-boundary value problems are studied. The problem with non-zero conditions on one side of the lateral boundary is discussed. The problem with homogeneous boundary conditions is studied too. The rates of convergence are given. Results presented show the difference between stabilization characters of solutions of these...

Electromagnetic scattering at composite objects : a novel multi-trace boundary integral formulation

Xavier Claeys, Ralf Hiptmair (2012)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

Since matrix compression has paved the way for discretizing the boundary integral equation formulations of electromagnetics scattering on very fine meshes, preconditioners for the resulting linear systems have become key to efficient simulations. Operator preconditioning based on Calderón identities has proved to be a powerful device for devising preconditioners. However, this is not possible for the usual first-kind boundary formulations for electromagnetic...

Improved successive constraint method based a posteriori error estimate for reduced basis approximation of 2D Maxwell's problem

Yanlai Chen, Jan S. Hesthaven, Yvon Maday, Jerónimo Rodríguez (2009)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis


In a posteriori error analysis of reduced basis approximations to affinely parametrized partial differential equations, the construction of lower bounds for the coercivity and inf-sup stability constants is essential. In [Huynh et al., C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris Ser. I Math.345 (2007) 473–478], the authors presented an efficient method, compatible with an off-line/on-line strategy, where the on-line computation is reduced to minimizing a linear functional under a few linear constraints. These constraints...

Initial-boundary value problems for second order systems of partial differential equations

Heinz-Otto Kreiss, Omar E. Ortiz, N. Anders Petersson (2012)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

We develop a well-posedness theory for second order systems in bounded domains where boundary phenomena like glancing and surface waves play an important role. Attempts have previously been made to write a second order system consisting of n equations as a larger first order system. Unfortunately, the resulting first order system consists, in general, of more than 2n equations which leads to many complications, such as side conditions which must be satisfied by the solution of the larger first order...

Numerical solution of the Maxwell equations in time-varying media using Magnus expansion

István Faragó, Ágnes Havasi, Robert Horváth (2012)

Open Mathematics

For the Maxwell equations in time-dependent media only finite difference schemes with time-dependent conductivity are known. In this paper we present a numerical scheme based on the Magnus expansion and operator splitting that can handle time-dependent permeability and permittivity too. We demonstrate our results with numerical tests.

Tangential fields in optical diffraction problems

Krček, Jiří, Vlček, Jaroslav, Žídek, Arnošt (2013)

Programs and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics

Optical diffraction for periodical interface belongs to relatively fewer exploited application of boundary integral equations method. Our contribution presents the formulation of diffraction problem based on vector tangential fields, for which the periodical Green function of Helmholtz equation is of key importance. There are discussed properties of obtained boundary operators with singular kernel and a numerical implementation is proposed.

T-coercivity for scalar interface problems between dielectrics and metamaterials

Anne-Sophie Bonnet-Ben Dhia, Lucas Chesnel, Patrick Ciarlet (2012)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

Some electromagnetic materials have, in a given frequency range, an effective dielectric permittivity and/or a magnetic permeability which are real-valued negative coefficients when dissipation is neglected. They are usually called metamaterials. We study a scalar transmission problem between a classical dielectric material and a metamaterial, set in an open, bounded subset of Rd, with d = 2,3. Our aim is to characterize occurences where the problem is well-posed within the Fredholm (or coercive...

The polarization in a ferroelectric thin film: local and nonlocal limit problems

Antonio Gaudiello, Kamel Hamdache (2013)

ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

In this paper, starting from classical non-convex and nonlocal 3D-variational model of the electric polarization in a ferroelectric material, via an asymptotic process we obtain a rigorous 2D-variational model for a thin film. Depending on the initial boundary conditions, the limit problem can be either nonlocal or local.

Two-scale div-curl lemma

Augusto Visintin (2007)

Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa - Classe di Scienze

The div-curl lemma, one of the basic results of the theory of compensated compactness of Murat and Tartar, does not take over to the case in which the two factors two-scale converge in the sense of Nguetseng. A suitable modification of the differential operators however allows for this extension. The argument follows the lines of a well-known paper of F. Murat of 1978, and uses a two-scale extension of the Fourier transform. This result is also extended to time-dependent functions, and is applied...

Uniform convergence of local multigrid methods for the time-harmonic Maxwell equation

Huangxin Chen, Ronald H. W. Hoppe, Xuejun Xu (2013)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

For the efficient numerical solution of indefinite linear systems arising from curl conforming edge element approximations of the time-harmonic Maxwell equation, we consider local multigrid methods (LMM) on adaptively refined meshes. The edge element discretization is done by the lowest order edge elements of Nédélec’s first family. The LMM features local hybrid Hiptmair smoothers of Jacobi and Gauss–Seidel type which are performed only on basis functions associated with newly created edges/nodal...
