We use recently proposed hierarchic basis functions and a tetrahedral partitioning to compute Maxwell eigenvalues on a bounded polygonal domain in /spl Ropf//sup 3/, using a p-version finite-element procedure based on edge elements. The problem formulation requires a set of basis functions that are H(curl)-conforming and another compatible set that is H/sup 1/-conforming. In this preliminary study, we employ a uniform order of approximation throughout the domain.
