Analysis of a mixed discontinuous Galerkin method for the time-harmonic Maxwell equations with minimal smoothness requirements

09/14/2020 ∙ by Kaifang Liu, et al. ∙ 0

An error analysis of a mixed discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method with Brezzi numerical flux for the time-harmonic Maxwell equations with minimal smoothness requirements is presented. The key difficulty in the error analysis for the DG method is that the tangential or normal trace of the exact solution is not well-defined on the mesh faces of the computational mesh. We overcome this difficulty by two steps. First, we employ a lifting operator to replace the integrals of the tangential/normal traces on mesh faces by volume integrals. Second, optimal convergence rates are proven by using smoothed interpolations that are well-defined for merely integrable functions. As a byproduct of our analysis, an explicit and easily computable stabilization parameter is given.
