An a posteriori error indicator for discontinuous Galerkin discretizations of \(H\)(curl)-elliptic partial differential equations. (English) Zbl 1148.65088
Summary: We introduce a residual-based a posteriori error indicator for discontinuous Galerkin discretizations of \(H(\text{curl}; \Omega)\)-elliptic boundary value problems that arise in eddy current models. We show that the indicator is both reliable and efficient with respect to the approximation error measured in terms of a natural energy norm. We validate the performance of the indicator within an adaptive mesh refinement procedure and show its asymptotic exactness for a range of test problems.
