After a brief introduction to micromagnetics, the speaker will present the Gauss-Seidel Projection Method, an unconditionally stable method for the Landau-Lifshitz equations. With this method we were able to correctly simulate the magnetization reversal process in a ferromagnetic sample in the presence of vortices.
