Nonlinear Nonequilibrium Simulations of Magnetic Nanoparticles


Magnetic nanoparticles are found in computer memory and in futuristic biomedical applications. General models for the particle dynamics are essential to understanding and predicting dynamical behaviors in diverse conditions. Many approaches have been used to varying degrees of success. Here we present the most general methods for modeling: nonlinear, nonequilibrium models that typically require computational solving. We maintain rigor throughout so that the expressions arise from as close to first principles calculations as possible. We present the intuitively simpler, conceptually satisfying models too but are clear on their ranges of validity. We are also explicit in the computational implementation where necessary. At the end, we summarize the state of the art and the interesting problems that remain unsolved.
