Space-Time Residual-Based A Posteriori Estimators for the A−ϕ Magnetodynamic Formulation of the Maxwell System

Emmanuel Creusé, Serge Nicaise and Roberta Tittarelli


In this paper, an a posteriori residual error estimator is proposed for the A−ϕ magnetodynamic Maxwell system given in its potential and space/time formulation and solved by a finite element method. The reliability as well as the efficiency of the estimator are established for several norms. Then, numerical tests are performed, allowing to illustrate the obtained theoretical results.
