Maxwell Geometric Dynamics

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 28)


This paper describes the least squares approximations of the solutions of Maxwell PDEs via their Euler-Lagrange prolongations. Section 5.1 recalls the variational problem in electrodynamics. Section 69.2 describes the Ibragimov-Maxwell Lagrangian. Section 69.3 gives the Ibragimov-Udrişte-Maxwell Lagrangian and finds its Euler-Lagrange PDEs system. Section 5.4 finds the Euler-Lagrange PDEs system associated to Udrişte-Maxwell Lagrangian, and shows that the waves are particular solutions. Section 69.5 studies the discrete Maxwell geometric dynamics. Section 69.6 performs Von Neumann analysis of the associated difference scheme. Section 69.7 addresses an open problem regarding our theory in the context of differential forms on a Riemannian manifold. Section 69.8 underlines the importance of the least squares Lagrangian.
