It is well-known that the dynamics of biaxial ferromagnets with a strong easy-plane anisotropy is essentially governed by the Sine-Gordon equation. In this paper, we provide a rigorous justification to this observation. More precisely, we show the convergence of the solutions to the Landau-Lifshitz equation for biaxial ferromagnets towards the solutions to the Sine-Gordon equation in the regime of a strong easy-plane anisotropy.

We prove a global well-posedness result for the Landau-Lifshitz equation with Gilbert damping provided that the BMO semi-norm of the initial data is small. As a consequence, we deduce the existence of self-similar solutions in any dimension. In the one-dimensional case, we characterize the self-similar solutions associated with an initial data given by some ($\mathbb{S}^2$-valued) step function and establish their stability. Read More

We consider the one-dimensional Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert (LLG) equation, a model describing the dynamics for the spin in ferromagnetic materials. Our main aim is the analytical study of the bi-parametric family of self-similar solutions of this model. In the presence of damping, our construction provides a family of global solutions of the LLG equation which are associated to a discontinuous initial data of infinite (total) energy, and which are smooth and have finite energy for all positive times.

We consider nontrivial finite energy traveling waves for the Landau-Lifshitz equation with easy-plane anisotropy. Our main result is the existence of a minimal energy for these traveling waves, in dimensions two, three and four. The proof relies on a priori estimates related with the theory of harmonic maps and the connection of the Landau-Lifshitz equation with the kernels appearing in the Gross-Pitaevskii equation.

We consider a Gross-Pitaevskii equation with a nonlocal interaction potential. We provide sufficient conditions on the potential such that there exists a range of speeds in which nontrivial traveling waves do not exist Read More

We study the Gross-Pitaevskii equation involving a nonlocal interaction potential. Our aim is to give sufficient conditions that cover a variety of nonlocal interactions such that the associated Cauchy problem is globally well-posed with non-zero boundary condition at infinity, in any dimension. We focus on even potentials that are positive definite or positive tempered distributions. Read More
