Periodic Boundary Conditions for Demagnetization Interactions in Micromagnetic Simulations
Michael J. Donahue, Kristof M. Lebecki, M.W. Gutowski
A new method for the introduction of periodic boundary conditions to the selfmagnetostatic (demagnetization) term in micromagnetic simulations is described, using an Ewaldlike summation method in real space. The long-range character of the dipolar interactions is included without any distance cutoffs. The accumulated errors are carefully monitored to provide easy control of the quality of the results. This allows the calculations to be either accurate up to floating point limitations, or less precise when computational speed requirements dominate. This method is incorporated into a full micromagnetic program, and comparisons are made to analytic results.
