Analysis and PDE Seminar: Skyrmions and stability of degree ±1 harmonic maps from the plane to the two-dimensional sphere
Seminar | August 26 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall
Thilo Simon, New Jersey Institute of Technology
Skyrmions are topologically nontrivial patterns in the magnetization of extremely thin ferromagnets. Typically thought of as stabilized by the so-called Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI), or antisymmetric exchange interaction, arising in such materials, they are of great interest in the physics community due to possible applications in memory devices.
