Abstract

In this paper, we develop a new integral representation for the solution of the time harmonic Maxwell equations in media with piecewise constant dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability in $\font\open=msbm10 at 10pt\def\R{\hbox{\open R}}\R^3$. This representation leads to a coupled system of Fredholm integral equations of the second kind for four scalar densities supported on the material interface. Like the classical Müller equation, it has no spurious resonances. Unlike the classical approach, however, the representation does not suffer from low-frequency breakdown. We illustrate the performance of the method with numerical examples.
