Boundary control of time-harmonic eddy current equations

  title={Boundary control of time-harmonic eddy current equations},
  author={Harbir Antil and Hugo D'iaz},
. Motivated by various applications, this article develops the notion of boundary control for Maxwell’s equations in the frequency domain. Surface curl is shown to be the appropriate regularization in order for the optimal control problem to be well-posed. Since, all underlying variables are assumed to be complex valued, the standard results on differentiability do not directly apply. Instead, we extend the notion of Wirtinger derivatives to complexified Hilbert spaces. Optimality conditions are…

Finite Element Analysis of an Optimal Control Problem in the Coefficients of Time-Harmonic Eddy Current Equations

The main findings are convergence results of the finite element discretization of the optimal control problem, including sensitivity analysis, regularity results, existence of an optimal control, and optimality conditions.

Optimal bilinear control of eddy current equations with grad–div regularization

An optimal bilinear control problem governed by time-harmonic eddy current equations is considered to estimate the electric conductivity of a 3D bounded isotropic domain and an optimal control approach based on grad-div regularization and divergence penalization is introduced.

An optimal domain decomposition preconditioner for low-frequency time-harmonic Maxwell equations

An iteration-by-subdomain procedure is proven to converge, showing that the preconditioner implicitly defined by the iterative procedure is optimal, and proving a regularity theorem for Dirichlet and Neumann harmonic fields.

Incompressible Finite Elements via Hybridization. Part II: The Stokes System in Three Space Dimensions

A method that gives exactly incompressible velocity approximations to Stokes flow in three space dimensions is introduced, which generalizes to allow for varying polynomial degrees on different mesh elements and to incorporate certain non-standard but physically relevant boundary conditions.
