Low-frequency electromagnetism

Numerical simulation is nowadays an essential tool in order to design electromagnetic systems, by estimating the electromagnetic fields generated in a wide variety of devices. An important challenge for many applications is to quantify the intensity of the electric field induced in a conductor by a current generated in its neighborhood. In the low-frequency regime, we can for example quote the study of the impact on the human body of a high-tension line or, for higher frequencies, the one of a smartphone. But the ability to simulate accurately some electromagnetic fields is also very useful for non-destructive control, in the context of the maintenance of nuclear power stations for example. The development of efficient numerical tools, among which a posteriori error estimators, is consequently necessary to reach a high precision of calculation in order to provide estimations as reliable as possible.
