This article deals with a hybrid numerical method for solving harmonic Maxwell equations in the classical electrodynamic context. This formulation can be used with any body of arbitrary three-dimensional geometry, of perfectly conducting material or dielectric, with locally inhomogeneous and anisotropic behavior laws, and with or without dielectric losses. The mathematical formulation is presented along with applications validating it. The exterior problem is treated by the integral equation method while local equations are used for the dielectric parts of the body. A global variational formulation of the coupled problem is developed for use in discretization by the finite element method. Boundary finite elements are used for integral operators connected with the exterior problem. Localized finite elements are used for the interior problem. Difficulties of irregular frequencies, also called resonant frequencies in the perfectly conducting case, arising from the integral formulation are analyzed in detail and an efficient solution is developed
