This paper is devoted to computations of eigenvalues and eigenvectors for the Schrödinger operator with constant magnetic field in a domain with corners, as the semi-classical parameter
h tends to
0. The eigenvectors corresponding to the smallest eigenvalues concentrate in the corners: They have a two-scale structure, consisting of a corner layer at scale \sqrt(h) and an oscillatory term at scale
h . The high frequency oscillations make the numerical computations particularly delicate. We propose a high order finite element method to overcome this difficulty. Relying on such a discretization, we illustrate theoretical results on plane sectors, squares, and other straight or curved polygons. We conclude by discussing convergence issues.
