Edge finite elements and mass lumping for Maxwell’s equations: The 3D case. (Éléments finis d’arête et condensation de masse pour les équations de Maxwell: Le cas de dimension 3.) (French. Abridged English version) Zbl 0893.65068

Summary: We construct a new family of tetrahedral edge finite elements for the resolution of Maxwell equations which solves the problem of mass lumping including the case of anisotropic media. The schemes obtained are analzyed through their numerical dispersion on regular meshes.
