Numerical Methods and Analysis for Landau-Lifshitz equation

The Landau-Lifshitz equation has been widely used to describe the dynamics of magnetization in a ferromagnetic material, which is highly nonlinear with the nonconvex constraint |m| = 1. In this talk, I will present an overview of recent development on numerical methods and analysis for the Landau-Lifshitz type equation. A crucial issue in designing efficient numerical schemes for this equation is to preserve this constraint in the discrete level. A simple and frequently-used one is the projection method which projects the numerical solution onto a unit sphere at each time step. Due to the simplicity of the sphere-projection approach, the method has been extensively used in various applications, including for energy-conserving or symplectic system and the evolution on a manifold. However, no rigorous error estimate is available up to now. Classical energy approach fails to be applied directly in the analysis of the projection method since both projected and unprojected solutions are involved in the discrete system. We shall present our recent works on optimal error analysis of linearized finite difference and finite element methods for the Landau-Lifshitz equation. The analysis is based on a more precise estimate of the difference between the errors of projected and unprojected solutions. Some numerical experiments are provided to confirm our theoretical results.
