The dynamical behaviour of magnetic materials is usually described by the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation, a hybrid between the Schrödinger map equation and the harmonic map heat flow. In some parameter regimes, the magnetisation develops vortex-like singularities (at the boundary or in the interior). In the talk, I will discuss how one can reduce the PDE dynamics of the material to ODE dynamics for the vortex positions.
