Abstract: In this work, we present a mathematical study of stability and controllability of one-dimensional network of ferromagnetic particles. The control is the magnetic field generated by a dipole whose position and whose amplitude can be selected. The evolution of the magnetic field in the network of particles is described by the Landau-Lifschitz equation. First, we model a network of ellipsoidal shape ferromagnetic particles. Then, we prove the stability of relevant configurations and discuss the controllability by the means of the external magnetic field induced by the magnetic dipole. Finally some numerical results illustrate the stability and the controllability results.
