Project Details


During the visit, Professor Kneupfer and our group in Bristol will explore problems arising in the context of magnetic domain wall dynamics in ferromagnetic nanostructures. In particular, we would like to concentrate on one of the most interesting and challenging regimes, namely domain wall motion under applied fields above the so-called Walker breakdown threshold, and investigate oscillating solutions of the Landau-Lifschitz-Gilbert equation and related phenomena including the spin-Cherenkov effect in ferromagnetic nanotubes.

In addition to research discussions, Prof. Knuepfer will be invited to give one or two seminars at on his recent work; the Analysis, Applied Analysis and/or the Fluids and Materials seminars would be appropriate venues. The School of Mathematics will be able to provide funding in support of these seminar talks. The visit will also provide an opportunity for our early career researchers to present and discuss their work to a leading researcher in the field.
