    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In general, the solution of a Maxwell interface problem would not belong to H1space and the standard C0finite element method fails. With the help of local L2projections applied to both the curl and div operators, we propose a new C0finite element method which can correctly converge to the non H1space solution. Stability and error estimates are given.
