Closing the hierarchy for non-Markovian magnetization dynamics

Abstract : We propose a stochastic approach for the description of the time evolution of the magnetization of nano-magnets, that interpolates between the Landau–Lifshitz–Gilbert and the Landau–Lifshitz–Bloch approximations , by varying the strength of the noise. In addition, we take into account the autocorrelation time of the noise and explore the consequences, when it is finite, on the scale of the response of the magnetization, i.e. when it may be described as colored, rather than white, noise and non-Markovian features become relevant. We close the hierarchy for the moments of the magnetization, by introducing a suitable truncation scheme, whose validity is tested by direct numerical solution of the moment equations and compared to the average deduced from a numerical solution of the corresponding stochastic Langevin equation. In this way we establish a general framework, that allows both coarse-graining simulations and faster calculations beyond the truncation approximation used here.
