Problems that present geometrical symmetry are often met in domain types
methods like the Boundary Element Method (BEM).
In order to reduce the
computation times, symmetry can be taken into account thanks to a rationale
called the Group Representation Theory.
The method consists in reducing an
original problem into a family of smaller ones, the global solution is obtained
In this paper, we propose the implementation of the BEM
for the 2-D Magnetostatics where the Poisson's equation is defined on
symmetrical non-homogeneous regions.
The non-abelian case is considered.
The theory is developed and the example of an induction motor is presented.
Geometrical symmetry is found in many engineering applications.
it is interesting to take advantage ...
