DAEs in Computational Electromagnetics

Our chapter on systems of Differential Algebraic Equations in computational electromagnetics has been published as part of the Differential-Algebraic Equations Forum book series:

Starting from space-discretisation of Maxwell’s equations, various classical formulations are proposed for the simulation of electromagnetic fields. They differ in the phenomena considered as well as in the variables chosen for discretisation. This contribution presents a literature survey of the most common approximations and formulations with a focus on their structural properties. The differential-algebraic character is discussed and quantified by the differential index concept.
