Mimetic Multiscale Methods and their application to Maxwell's equations


Solving Maxwell's equations for earth science applications requires the discretization of large domains with sufficiently small mesh to capture local conductivity variation. Multiscale methods are discretization techniques that allow to use a coarse mesh and still obtain accuracy that is obtained through finer meshes. However, when considering the multiscale solution of vector equations, basic operator properties are not conserved. In this talk we will show how to extend multiscale methods for vector quantities and demonstrate their use for Maxwell's equations.
