Higher $L^p$ regularity for vector fields that satisfy divergence and rotation constraints in dual Sobolev spaces, and application to some low-frequency Maxwell equations

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We show that $L^p$ vector fields over a Lipschitz domain are integrable to higher exponents if their generalized divergence and rotation can be identified with bounded linear operators acting on standard Sobolev spaces. A Div-Curl Lemma-type argument provides compact embedding results for such vector fields. We use these tools to investigate the regularity of the solution to the low-frequency approximation of the Maxwell equations in time-harmonic regime. We focus on the weak formulation `in H' of the problem, in a reference geometrical setting allowing for material heterogeneities and nonsmooth interfaces.
