Existence of Weak Solution for a Class of Abstract Coupling System Associated with Stationary Electromagnetic System

Junichi Aramaki

Full-text: Open access


We consider the existence of a weak solution for a class of coupling system containing stationary electromagnetic coupling system associated with the Maxwell equations in a multi-connected domain. Mathematically we are concerned with the coupled system containing a $p$-curl equation and a $q$-Laplacian equation.
