Atomistic Spin Dynamics: Foundations and Applications

Olle Eriksson, Anders Bergman, Lars Bergqvist, and Johan Hellsvik


The purpose of this book is to provide a theoretical foundation and an understanding of atomistic spin-dynamics, and to give examples of where the atomistic Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation can and should be used. The contents involve a description of density functional theory both from a fundamental viewpoint as well as a practical one, with several examples of how this theory can be used for the evaluation of ground state properties like spin and orbital moments, magnetic form-factors, magnetic anisotropy, Heisenberg exchange parameters, and the Gilbert damping parameter. This book also outl ... More

Keywords: atomistic spin-dynamics, density functional theory, multiscale modelling, ultrafast magnetization dynamics, Langevin dynamics, magnon, skyrmion
