Condensed Matter Seminar

Thursday, November 5th 2009
1:25 pm:
Condensed Matter Seminar in 210 Physics
Speaker: Prof. Daniel Spirn, Department of Mathematics, University of Minnesota
Subject: Motion of Micromagnetic Vortices

In certain very thin regimes of ferromagnetic materials, it is energetically favorable for vortices to condense. I will discuss how such vortices move when driven by the Landau-Lifschitz-Gilbert equations. I will show how such a result can be proven by understanding some intrinsic quantities and their conservation laws.
