The Sine–Gordon regime of the Landau–Lifshitz equation with a strong easy-plane anisotropy

It is well-known that the dynamics of biaxial ferromagnets with a strong easy-plane anisotropy is essentially governed by the Sine-Gordon equation. A. de Laire and P. Gravejat provided in [10] a rigorous justification to this observation. More precisely, they showed the convergence of the solutions to the Landau-Lifshitz equation for biaxial ferromagnets towards the solutions to the Sine-Gordon equation in the regime of a strong easy-plane anisotropy. This result holds for solutions to the Landau–Lifshitz equation in high order Sobolev spaces. They also provided an alternative proof for local well-posedness in this setting by introducing high order energy quantities with better symmetrization properties. Then they derived the convergence from the consistency of the Landau–Lifshitz equation with the Sine-Gordon equation by using well-tailored energy estimates. As a by-product, they also obtained a further derivation of the free wave regime of the Landau–Lifshitz equation.
