Ferromagnetic of nanowires of infinite length and infinite thin films

  • Khaled Chacouche
  • Rejeb HadijiEmail author


The aim of the work described in this paper is to determine, via an asymptotic analysis, the limiting form of the free energy governing in the first case 3D ferromagnetic nanowires of infinite length in the limit and in the second case 3D thin films which become infinite when their thickness is vanished. A 1D limit problem on the nanowires and a 2D limit problem on the thin films are obtained.
