Abstract

We prove a global well-posedness result for the Landau–Lifshitz equation with Gilbert damping provided that the BMO semi-norm of the initial data is small. As a consequence, we deduce the existence of self-similar solutions in any dimension. In the one-dimensional case, we characterize the self-similar solutions associated with an initial data given by some (-valued) step function and establish their stability. We also show the existence of multiple solutions if the damping is strong enough.

Our arguments rely on the study of a dissipative quasilinear Schrödinger equation obtained via the stereographic projection and techniques introduced by Koch and Tataru.
