A postprocessing technique for a discontinuous Galerkin discretization of time-dependent Maxwell's equations

10/03/2020 ∙ by G. Nehmetallah, et al. ∙ 0

We present a novel postprocessing technique for a discontinuous Galerkin (DG) discretization of time-dependent Maxwell's equations that we couple with an explicit Runge-Kutta time-marching scheme. The postprocessed electromagnetic field converges one order faster than the unprocessed solution in the H(curl)-norm. The proposed approach is local, in the sense that the enhanced solution is computed independently in each cell of the computational mesh, and at each time step of interest. As a result, it is inexpensive to compute, especially if the region of interest is localized, either in time or space. The key ideas behind this postprocessing technique stem from hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods, which are equivalent to the analyzed DG scheme for specific choices of penalization parameters. We present several numerical experiments that highlight the superconvergence properties of the postprocessed electromagnetic field approximation.
