The numerical solution of very large 3D electromagnetic field problems are challenging for various applications in the industry. In this paper, we propose a nonoverlapping domain decomposition approach for solving the 3D Maxwell equations on MIMD computers, based on a mixed variational formulation. It is especially well adapted for the solution of the Vlasov-Maxwell equations, widely used to simulate complex devices like particle injectors or accelerators. This approach in particular leads to reuse without modification most of an existing sequential code.
