Let  $\Omega=\left[0,1\right]^3$Ω=[0,1]3, $\Omega_1=\left[0.4,0.6\right]^3$Ω1=[0.4,0.6]3,  $\Omega_0=\Omega\backslash\overline{\Omega}_1$Ω0=Ω\Ω1 and  $\Gamma=\overline{\Omega}_0\cap\overline{\Omega}_1$Γ=Ω0Ω1.
Now, for  $i=1,\ldots,n$i=1,…,n, find  $\textbf{A}_i$Ai and  $\phi_i$ϕi such that
$\int_{\Omega_1}\delta\textbf{A}_i\cdot\textbf{Q}+\int_{\Omega}\nabla\times\textbf{A}_i\cdot\nabla\times\textbf{Q}+\int_{\Omega}\nabla\cdot\textbf{A}_i\cdot\nabla\cdot\textbf{Q}=\int_{\Omega_0}\textbf{J}_i\cdot\textbf{Q}-\int_{\Omega_1}\nabla\phi_{i-1}\cdot\textbf{Q}$Ω1δAi·Q+Ω×Ai·×Q+Ω·Ai··Q=Ω0Ji·QΩ1ϕi1·Q,
$\int_{\Omega_1}\nabla\phi_i\cdot\nabla\psi=\int_{\Omega_1}\delta\textbf{A}_i\cdot\nabla\psi$Ω1ϕi·ψ=Ω1δAi·ψ,
where
$\delta u_i=\frac{u_i-u_{i-1}}{\tau}$δui=uiui1τ .
My question is how to solve  $\phi$ϕ which is defined on  $\Omega_1$Ω1 only.

I asked a similar question on the old forum. Maybe it'll help?

Hi Mike,
Thanks a lot for your reply. After I reading the web (and the links in it also), I tried to use DirichletBC on restrict $\phi$ϕ in $\Omega_0$Ω0, and the program can run now.

As a possible solution, please see my recent post at https://www.allanswered.com/post/qvxae/announcement-multiphenics-easy-prototyping-of-multiphysics-problems-in-fenics/ . There are of course several other possible solutions, related to the one linked by Mike Welland.

Hello Francesco,
I'm a amateur for FEniCS, and I think your multiphenics is a little hard to understand for me now.
Thank you all the same.
