Finite element heterogeneous multiscale method for time-dependent Maxwell’s equation

Hochbruck, Marlis; Stohrer, Christian


We propose a Finite Element Heterogeneous Multiscale Method (FEHMM) for time dependent Maxwell’s equations in second-order formulation. This method can approximate the effective behavior of an electromagnetic wave traveling through a highly oscillatory material without the need to resolve the microscopic details of the material. To prove an a-priori error bound for the semi-discrete FE-HMM scheme, we need a new generalization of a Strang-type lemma for second-order hyperbolic equations. Finally, we present a numerical example that is in accordance with the theoretical results.
