Transmission conditions between subdomains have a substantial influence on the convergence of iterative domain decomposition algorithms. For Maxwell’s equations, transmission conditionswhich lead to rapidly converging algorithms have been developed both for the curl-curl formulation of Maxwell’s equation, see [1–3], and also for first order formulations, see [6, 7]. These methods have well found their way into applications, see for example [9] and the references therein. It turns out that good transmission conditions are approximations of transparent boundary conditions.
