    Stationary Solutions of Neutral Stochastic Partial Differential Equations with Delays in the Highest-Order Derivatives

    Full text link
    In this work, we shall consider the existence and uniqueness of stationary solutions to stochastic partial functional differential equations with additive noise in which a neutral type of delay is explicitly presented. We are especially concerned about those delays appearing in both spatial and temporal derivative terms in which the coefficient operator under spatial variables may take the same form as the infinitesimal generator of the equation. We establish the stationary property of the neutral system under investigation by focusing on distributed delays. In the end, an illustrative example is analysed to explain the theory in this work

    Rotational hysteresis of the exchange anisotropy direction in Co/FeMn thin films

    Full text link
    We have investigated the effects of rotating an applied field on the exchange anisotropy in Co/FeMn thin films. When the applied field is initially along the cooling field direction, the longitudinal hysteresis loop has a maximum coercivity and the transverse hysteresis loop is flat, indicating that the exchange field is along the cooling field direction. When the applied field angle is rotated away and then restored to the original field cooling direction, the exchange anisotropy direction has changed. The rotation of the exchange field direction trails the applied field and is hysteretic. The rotational hysteresis of the exchange field direction is due to the weak anisotropy in thin FeMn layers, and decreases with increasing FeMn thickness.Comment: 13 pages, 3 figures, to appear in J.
