Paper Abstract

In this paper, we report some results obtained in computational micromagnetism, particularly the numerical approximation of hysteresis phenomenon and the numerical approximation of closure domains. We successively consider a brief recall about micromagnetism, a mathematical modelization of a ferromagnetic material by using the total energy functional of the system, a choice of an appropriate functional space and an associated existence theorem, a convenient minimization algorithm based on an augmented Lagrangian method used in combination with an appropriated finite element method. These developments are illustrated upon the study of a piece of a very thin rectangular plate of a ferromagnetic material located in a coplanar unidirectional exterior magnetic field Hest. Under the action of Hest, we compute the internal magnetization of the plate and then, by decreasing step by step the external field from Hmaxex to -Hmaxex, we find back numerically two physical phenomena, the hysterisis and the motion of walls of the closure domains.
