Boundary vortices for thin ferromagnetic films

Roger Moser


We consider a simplified version of the micromagnetic energy for ferromagnetic samples in the shape of thin films. We study (a) stationary, stable critical points, and (b) solutions of the corresponding Landau-Lifshitz equation under a stability condition. We determine the asymptotic behaviour of solutions of these variational problems in the thin film limit. A characteristic property of the limit is the development of Ginzburg-Landau-type vortices at the boundary.
