  • Abstract

In this paper, a nonconforming mixed finite element method (FEM) is presented to approximate time-dependent Maxwell’s equations in a three-dimensional bounded domain with absorbing boundary conditions (ABC). By employing traditional variational formula, instead of adding penalty terms, we show that the discrete scheme is robust. Meanwhile, with the help of the element’s typical properties and derivative transfer skills, the convergence analysis and error estimates for semidiscrete and backward Euler fully-discrete schemes are given, respectively. Numerical tests show the validity of the proposed method.
