Abstract

Γ-convergence techniques and relaxation results of constrained energy functionals are used to identify the limiting energy as the thickness ε approaches zero of a ferromagnetic thin structure Ω ε = ω × ( - ε , ε ) , ω 2 , whose energy is given by ε ( m ¯ ) = 1 ε Ω ε W ( m ¯ , m ¯ ) + 1 2 u ¯ · m ¯ d x subject to div ( - u ¯ + m ¯ χ Ω ε ) = 0 on 3 , and to the constraint | m ¯ | = 1 on Ω ε , where W is any continuous function satisfying p-growth assumptions with p> 1. Partial results are also obtained in the case p=1, under an additional assumption on W.
