We consider Galerkin boundary element methods for the approximation of different kinds of electromagnetic resonance problems. Examples are the cavity resonance problem, the scattering resonance problem and the plasmonic resonance problem. An analysis of the used boundary integral formulations and their numerical approximations ispresented in the framework of eigenvalue problems for holomorphic Fredholmoperatorvalued functions. We use recent abstract results to show that theGalerkin approximations with RaviartThomas elements provide a socalled regular approximation of the underlying operators of the eigenvalue problems. This enables us to applyclassical results of the numerical analysis of eigenvalue problems for holomorphic Fredholm operatorvalued functions which implies convergence of the approximations and quasioptimal error estimates.
We also address practical issues of the numerical computations of resonances and modes as the application of the contour integral method and of Newtontype methods for eigenvalue tracking.
