Analysis of the A, V - A - ψ potential formulation for the eddy current problem in a bounded domain

Ramiro Acevedo and Rodolfo Rodríguez


The aim of this paper is to provide a mathematical analysis of the well-known ${\bf A},V-{\bf A}-\psi$ potential formulation for the eddy current problem. The resulting variational problem is proved to be well posed and error estimates are settled for a numerical method based on standard nodal finite elements.
