To study current-driven magnetization dynamics, spin-torque terms providing the action of spin-polarized currents have previously often been added in a phenomenological way to the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation describing the local spin dynamics, yet without derivation from fundamental principles. Here, starting from the Dirac-Kohn-Sham theory and incorporating nonlocal spin transport we rigorously derive the various spin-torque terms that appear in current-driven magnetization dynamics. In particular we obtain an extended magnetization dynamics equation that precisely contains the nonrelativistic adiabatic and relativistic nonadiabatic spin-transfer torques of the Berger and Zhang-Li forms as well as relativistic spin-orbit torques. We derive in addition a previously unnoticed relativistic spin-torque term and moreover show that the various obtained spin-torque terms do not appear in the same mathematical form in both the Landau-Lifshitz and Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equations of spin dynamics.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Berritta, Marco</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Mondal, Ritwik</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-01T11:38:53Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
