We are concerned with the three-dimensional time-dependent incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations with magnetic vector potential formulations. Compared with the traditional B formulations, the new MHD system has the advantage that it can ensure a direct exact discrete divergence-free magnetic induction in practical numerical computations. Using a mixed finite element approach, we discretize the velocity and pressure by stable finite elements, and the magnetic vector potential by Nedelec edge elements. We first discuss the existence and uniqueness of the weak solution for the new continuous MHD system. Next, under a reasonable hypothesis of the regularity for the exact solution, the optimal estimates for the velocity and magnetic vector potential are rigorously established. Finally, several numerical experiments have been provided to illustrate the performance and convergence rates of the numerical scheme.
