2. Case k = 0, n ≥ 3. The asymptotic conditions for the traces of ω are given by (44) and (45), respectively. The decay behaviour of the fundamental solution with k = 0 is obvious from (14). While the third term on the right hand side of (62) vanishes, it is easy to see that the three remaining terms are of order O(R2−n ) for R → ∞. 3. Case k = 0, n = 2. For p = 0 see [27, Thm. 9]. For p = 1, there holds b = 0 in (44) and (45), respectively. We can argue like in the previous case. The first term in (62) is of order O(R−1 ln R), the other two non-zero terms are of order O(R−1 ), for R → ∞.

Three cases need to be distinguished: 1. Case k = 0. It holds that (γNR − ikγDR )ω L2 (Γ R ) = o(1), γDR ω L2 (Γ R ) = O(1), n ω L2 (Γ R ) = o(1), R ⎫ ⎪ ⎪ ⎬ ⎪ ⎪ ⎭ (63) Differential Forms and Boundary Integral Equations for Maxwell-Type Problems 37 for R → ∞, see (38) and (42), respectively.

4 Jump Relations of the Layer Potentials Lemma 10. All relevant jump relations on the interface between Ω and Ω c are −1/2 p −1/2 collected in the subsequent table for data γ ∈ H Λ (δ , Γ ), β ∈ H⊥ Λ p (d, Γ ), and ϕ ∈ H −1/2 p Λ (δ , Γ ). Potential γN · γD · n · ΨSL γ ΨDL β dΨSL ϕ −γ 0 0 0 β 0 0 0 −ϕ Remark 17. 1. The mapping properties (67) and (69) of the layer potentials together with those of the trace operators (37) ensure that all combinations displayed in the table are well defined. 2. The top left 2x2 block of the table reveals that these jump relations coincide with those of the standard single and double layer potentials in the scalar case.
