In this paper, we consider the micromagnetic variational problem for soft ferromagnetic nanowires. We show that, as the diameter of the wire is small, the magnetization inside the wire depends only on the length variable of the wire. The micromagnetic energy of the wire, in this case, is greatly simplified and in order to find the optimal magnetization distribution, one has to solve a 1D local variational problem.
