"Stabilization yields strong convergence of macroscopic magnetization vectors for micromagnetics without exchange energy";
Journal of Numerical Mathematics, 20 (2012), 2; 81 - 109.

English abstract:
The convexified Landau-Lifshitz minimization problem in micromagnetics leads
to a degenerate variational problem. Therefore strong convergence of finite
element approximations cannot be expected in general.
This paper introduces a stabilized finite element discretization which allows
for the strong convergence of the discrete magnetization fields with reduced
convergence order for a uniaxial model problem. This yields a convergent
method for the approximation of the Young measure describing the
microstructure for the generalized solution of the non-relaxed Landau-Lifshitz
