Paper Abstract

We discuss spin transfer and its reverse process, the generation of electric current by dynamic magnetization textures. Both these processes acquire corrections due to spin relaxation. In the case of layered structures the latter contribute to the effective-field-like spin torque, which in the continuum case results in the dissipative spin transfer torque, or "β-term". The corresponding corrections to spin pumping and spin motive forces are discussed with emphasis on, and applications to, field-driven domain walls.
