In the context of micromagnetics the partial differential equation

\[\div(-\nabla u+\m)=0\text{ in }\R^d\]

has to be solved in the entire space for a given magnetization

$\m:\Omega\to\R^d$ and $\Omega\subseteq\R^d$. For an $L^p$ function

$\m$ we show that the solution might fail to be in the classical

Sobolev space $W^{1,p}(\R^d)$ but has to be in a Beppo-Levi class

$W_1^p(\R^d)$. We prove unique solvability in $W_1^p(\R^d)$ and

provide a direct ansatz to obtain $u$ via a non-local integral

operator $\LL_p$ related to the Newtonian potential. A possible

discretization to compute $\nabla(\LL_2\m)$ is mentioned and it is

shown how recently established matrix compression techniques using

hierarchical matrices can be applied to the full matrix obtained from

the discrete operator.
