Abstract (EN)The behavior of a thin film made of a ferromagnetic material in the absence of an external magnetic field is described by an energy depending on the magnetization of the film verifying the saturation constraint. The free energy consists of an induced magnetostatic energy and an energy term with density including the exchange energy and the anisotropic energy. We study the behavior of this energy when the thickness of the curved film goes to zero. We show that the minimizers of the free energy converge to the minimizers of a local energy depending on a two-dimensional magnetization by Γ-convergence arguments.
