We consider the quasi-magnetostatic eddy current problem discretized by means of lowest order curl-conforming finite elements (edge elements) on tetrahedral meshes. Bounds for the discretization error in the finite element solution are desirable to control adaptive mesh refinement. We propose a local a-posteriori error estimator based on higher order edge… (More)
