Description/Abstract

We present a new method to simulate repetitive ferromagnetic structures. This macro geometry
approach combines treatment of short-range interactions (i.e. the exchange field) as for periodic
boundary conditions with a specification of the arrangement of copies of the primary simulation cell
n order to correctly include effects of the demagnetizing field. This method (i) solves a consistency
problem that prevents the naive application of 3d periodic boundary conditions in micromagnetism
and (ii) is well suited for the efficient simulation of repetitive systems of any size.
