On the motion of domain walls in ferromagnets


Prof. Paolo Podio-Guidugli

University of Roma TorVergata


Abstract

I shall show that certain domain-wall motions are exact solutions of the Gilbert parabolic equation of dynamic micromagnetics. I shall also discuss a formal asymptotic procedure that makes the Gilbert equation yield a motion-by-curvature equation for a class of domain-wall motions.
