Electromagnetic transmission problems with a large parameter in weighted Sobolev spaces

Jorge Eliecer Ospino

We present an a priori estimate for an electromagnetic transmission problem in unbounded exterior domains in R^3. We consider Maxwell's equations in two sub-domains, the bounded interior representing a conducting material (metal) and the unbounded exterior representing an insulating material (air). The behavior of the solution at infinity is described by means of families of weighted Sobolev spaces, so-called Beppo-Levi spaces [11]. We prove the existence and uniqueness of the solution.
