Staggered Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Wave Transmission Between Dielectric and Meta-Materials


Some electromagnetic materials exhibit, in a given frequency range, effective dielectric permittivity and/or magnetic permeability which are negative. In the literature, they are called negative index materials, left-handed materials, or meta-materials. We propose a staggered discontinuous Galerkin method to solve a wave transmission between a classical dielectric material and a meta-material. Convergence of the numerical method is proven, with the help of explicit \(\text{inf}\)-\(\text{sup}\) operators, and numerical examples are provided to show the efficiency of the method.
