We develop and analyze an adaptive hybridized Interior Penalty Discontinuous Galerkin (IPDG-H) method for H(curl)-elliptic boundary value problems in 2D or 3D arising from a semi-discretization of the eddy currents equations. The method can be derived from a mixed formulation of the given boundary value problem and involves a Lagrange multiplier that is an approximation of the tangential traces of the primal variable on the interfaces of the underlying triangulation of the computational domain. It is shown that the IPDG-H technique can be equivalently formulated and thus implemented as a mortar method. The mesh adaptation is based on a residual-type a posteriori error estimator consisting of element and face residuals. Within a unified framework for adaptive finite element methods, we prove the reliability of the estimator up to a consistency error. The performance of the adaptive symmetric IPDG-H method is documented by numerical results for representative test examples in 2D.
