How to learn Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation

  1. Jun 19, 2012 #1

    I need to learn Landau-Lifgarbagez-Gilbert equation for one project. So I'm wondering how much stuff I need to know before being able to understand this equation. I have taken a standard upper-level undergraduate electrodynamics. (We finished Griffith). Unfortunately, I haven't taken any statistical mechanics.

    Can anyone tell me what is the most efficient way to learn Landau-Lifgarbagez-Gilbert equation from what I know? Thank you very much.

    I don't have an in-depth knowledge of the LLG equation but I did learn it for my numerical micro-magnetic research. I had to solve the LLG equation numerically.

    I think it's a simple equation provided that you start with Landau-Lifgarbagez equation first rather than Landau-Lifgarbagez -Gilbert and assume zero damping parameter, and derive the response of a single spin magnetic moment to an applied field.
