Computational Performance of a Weighted Regularized Maxwell Equation Finite Element Formulation

Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 136, 61-77, 2013
Abstract
The aim of this work is to asses the computational performance of a finite element formulation based on nodal elements and the regularized Maxwell equations. We analyze the memory requirements and the condition number of the matrix when the formulation is applied to electromagnetic engineering problems. As a reference, we solve the same problems with the best known finite element formulation based on edge elements and the double curl Maxwell equations. Finally, we compare and discuss the computational efficiency of both approaches.
