Workshop on Magnetic microstructures

Ferromagnetic materials exhibit complex microstructures on several interacting length scales (domains, walls, singular lines and points) which critically depend on material parameters and external fields. Understanding and controlling these structures is of large technogical importance. At the same time magnetic materials provide an excellent model to study fundamental issues in multi-scale systems since there is a rich body of data from experiments and simulations.

The goal of this workshop is to explore new analytical and computational approaches to magnetic microstructures in the light of recent advances in experimental techniques, theory and mathematical analysis. It will bring together leading researchers from the different fields involved, and topics to be covered will include:

  • Domain patterns in thin and ultrathin films
  • Magnetic multilayers
  • Weak convergence and relaxation methods for the analysis of multiscale systems
  • Mathematical theory of 3d to 2d dimensional reduction
  • Computational advances, including adaptivity, relaxation techniques and fast evaluation of the demagnetizing energy

This workshop is organized in collaboration with the GAMM working group 'Analysis of microstructures'.
