Curl-Curl operator of 2nd order Maxwell's equations, A. Bodendiek    
From Andre Bodendiek, Institut Computational Mathematics,            
TU Braunschweig                                                      
The following matrix collection consists of the curl-curl-operator   
of a second-order Maxwell's equations with PEC boundary conditions,  
i.e. E x n = 0, where E and n denote the electric field strength     
and the unit outer normal of the computational domain. The           
curl-curl-operator has been discretized using the Finite Element     
Method with first-order Nedelec elements resulting in the weak       
   1/mu0 ( curl E, curl v ),                                         
where v resembles a test function of H(curl) and                     
mu0 = 1.25 1e-9 H / mm denotes the magnetic permeability of vacuum,  
see [Hipt02].                                                        
In general, the underlying model problem of Maxwell's equations      
results from a Coplanar Waveguide, which will be considered for      
the analysis of parasitic effects in the development of new          
semiconductors. Since the corresponding dynamical systems are often  
high-dimensional, model order reduction techniques have become an    
appealing approach for the efficient simulation and accurate analysis
of the parasitic effects. However, different kinds of model order    
techniques require the repeated solution of high-dimensional linear  
systems of the original model problem, see [Bai02,An09]. Therefore,  
the development of efficient solvers resembles an important task     
in model order reduction.
