Ferromagnetic domain wall as a nonreciprocal string.

Shu Zhang, Oleg Tchernyshyov

We present a simple model of a domain wall in a thin-film ferromagnet. A domain wall is represented as a nonreciprocal string, on which transverse waves propagate with different speeds in opposite directions. The model has three parameters: mass density, tension, and a gyroscopic constant quantifying the nonreciprocity. We discuss the unusual dynamics of a nonreciprocal string in a strip of constant width.
