I will present recent results about magnetic force formulae for two rigid
magnetic bodies. Using different scales to describe the distance between
the bodies, we discuss continuum limits of atomistic dipole-dipole
interactions. This allows to link a classical force formula and a limiting
force formula obtained earlier as a discrete-to-continuum limit for bodies
being in contact on the atomistic scale.
This is joint work with Bernd Schmidt, cf. MPI MIS Preprint 29/2007.
