Stability of chiral magnetic skyrmion solutions of 2D Landau-Lifshitz equations Gustafon, Stephen


Landau-Lifshitz equations are the basic dynamical equations in a micromagnetic description of a ferromagnet. They are naturally viewed as geometric evolution PDE of dispersive, Hamiltonian type (``Schrodinger maps") , which scale critically with respect to the physical energy in two space dimensions. We describe here recent results on the stability of important topological soliton solutions known as ``chiral magnetic skyrmions". This is joint work with Li Wang.
