A third order finite volume WENO scheme for Maxwell's equations on tetrahedral meshes
A third order type II WENO finite volume scheme for tetrahedral unstructured meshes is applied to the numerical solution of Maxwell’s equations. Stability and accuracy of the scheme are severely affected by mesh distortions, domain geometries, and material inhomogeneities. The accuracy of the scheme is enhanced by a clever choice of a small parameter in the WENO weights. Also, hybridization with a polynomial scheme is proposed to eliminate unnecessary and costly WENO reconstructions in regions where the solution is smooth. The proposed implementation is applied to several test problems to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency, as well as usefulness of the scheme to problems with singularities.
