A Virtual Finite Element Method for Two Dimensional Maxwell Interface Problems with a Background Unfitted Mesh

03/08/2021 ∙ by Shuhao Cao, et al. ∙ 0

A virtual element method (VEM) with the first order optimal convergence order is developed for solving two dimensional Maxwell interface problems on a special class of polygonal meshes that are cut by the interface from a background unfitted mesh. A novel virtual space is introduced on a virtual triangulation of the polygonal mesh satisfying a maximum angle condition, which shares exactly the same degrees of freedom as the usual ()-conforming virtual space. This new virtual space serves as the key to prove that the optimal error bounds of the VEM are independent of high aspect ratio of the possible anisotropic polygonal mesh near the interface.
