### Non-standard discretizations

Very often non-standard discretizations as Nedelec finite elements, mixed finite elements or nonconforming techniques provide better results for the numerical approximation of partial differential equations. In particular, Nedelec finite elements are curl-conforming and mixed finite elements are div-conforming vector field approaches which are of special interest for some applications.- Maxwell equations (Nedelec FE)
