Abstract: This paper contains error estimates for covolume discretizations of Maxwell's equations in three space dimensions. Several estimates are proved. First, an estimate for a semi-discrete scheme is given. Second, the estimate is extended to cover the classical interlaced time marching technique. Third, some of our unstructured mesh results are specialized to rectangular meshes, both uniform and nonuniform. By means of some additional analysis it is shown that the spatial convergence rate is one order higher than for the unstructured case.
