  • We study the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation in a composite ferromagnetic medium made of two different materials with highly contrasted properties. Over the so-called matrix domain, the effective field, the demagnetizing field and the bulk anisotropy field are scaled with regard to a parameter $ε$ representing the size of the matrix blocks. This scaling preserves the physics of the magnetization as $ε$ tends to zero. Using homogenization theory, we derive the corresponding effective model. To this aim we use the concept of two-scale convergence together with a new homogenization procedure for handling with the nonlinear terms. More precisely, an appropriate dilation operator is applied in a embedded cells network, the network being constrained by the microscopic geometry. We prove that the less magnetic part of the medium contributes through additional memory terms in the effective field.
