Pattern formation in simple spintronic device models with aligned fields

Prof. Jens Rademacher (Universität Bremen)

The self-organized emergence of spatio-temporal patterns is a ubiquitous phenomenon in nonlinear processes on large homogeneous domains. In this talk a class of Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert-Slonczewski equations is studied from this viewpoint, highlighting various aspects of the theory. The model describes magnetization dynamics in the presence of an applied field and a spin polarized current. Here we consider the case of axial symmetry and focus on coherent structure solutions that occur due to the symmetry. This is joint work with Christof Melcher (RWTH).
