Abstract : In [X. Claeys and R. Hiptmair, Integral equations on multi-screens. Integral Equ Oper Theory, 77(2):167–197, 2013] we developed a framework for the analysis of boundary integral equations for acoustic scattering at so-called multi-screens, which are arbitrary arrangements of thin panels made of impenetrable material. In this article we extend these considerations to boundary integral equations for electromagnetic scattering. We view tangential multi-traces of vector fields from the perspective of quotient spaces and introduce the notion of single-traces and spaces of jumps. We also derive representation formulas and establish key properties of the involved potentials and related boundary operators. Their coercivity will be proved using a splitting of jump fields. Another new aspect emerges in the form of surface differential operators linking various trace spaces.
