Abstract : In this work, we discuss the formulation, stability, convergence and numerical validation of a high-order leap-frog based non-dissipative discontinuous Galerkin time-domain (DGTD) method for solving Maxwell's equations on non-conforming simplicial meshes. This DGTD method makes use of a nodal polynomial interpolation method for the approximation of the electromagnetic field within a simplex, and of a centered scheme for the calculation of the numerical flux at an interface between neighboring elements. Moreover, the interpolation degree is defined at the element level and the mesh is refined locally in a non-conforming way resulting in arbitrary level hanging nodes. The method is proved to be stable and conserves a discrete analog of the electromagnetic energy for metallic cavities. The convergence of the semi-discrete approximation to Maxwell's equations is established rigorously and bounds on the global divergence error are provided. Numerical experiments with high-order elements show the potential of the method.
