Damping of magnetization dynamics in a ferromagnetic metal, arising from spin–orbit coupling, is usually characterised by the Gilbert parameter α. Recent calculations of this quantity, using a formula due to Kambersky, find that it is infinite for a perfect crystal owing to an intraband scattering term which is of third order in the spin–orbit parameter ξ. This surprising result conflicts with recent work by Costa and Muniz who study damping numerically by direct calculation of the dynamical…

An extended Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation is introduced to describe the dynamics of inhomogeneous magnetization in a current-carrying wire and two terms are of particular importance since they describe non-adiabatic spin-transfer torque and damping processes which do not rely on spin-orbit coupling.
