Abstract: With the help of curved and mixed finite elements, we introduce an approximate surface on which the discrete problem is defined and construct surface currents and charges which approximate the solution of the continuous problem studied in a previous part. We study the existence and uniqueness of the solution of the discrete problem and give estimates for the error between currents, charges, corresponding fields and their calculated approximations.
