Recently, Landau-Lifshitz equation has been studied by a number of
mathematicians. The equation is vector-valued with its value in $S^2$.
This seminar introduces the Landau-Lifshitz equation modeling magnetic
vector of ferromagnetic films and the phenomena called magnetic
domain wall which is the solution for Landau-Lifshitz equation.
We will present some result of stability for travelling wave solutions
called Walker wall.
