Mathematics Colloquium

A New Potential-Theoretic Formulation for Maxwell's Equations: Geometry and Analysis

Speaker: Felipe Vico, Polytechnic University of Valencia

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: Monday, December 8, 2014, 3:45 p.m.


Existing formulations of Maxwell's equations encounter difficulties in domains with nontrivial genus. We will describe a new system of boundary value problems for the electromagnetic vector and scalar potentials that permits stable and robust solutions of scattering problems for all frequencies.
