## Steady state solutions of ferrofluid flow models

We study two models of differential equations for the stationary flow of an incompressible viscous magnetic fluid subjected to an external magnetic field. The first model, called Rosensweig's model, consists of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, the angular momentum equation, the magnetization equation of Bloch-Torrey type, and the magnetostatic equations. The second one, called Shliomis model, is obtained by assuming that the angular momentum is given in terms of the magnetic field, the magnetization field and the vorticity. It consists of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equation, the magnetization equation and the magnetostatic equations. We prove, for each of the differential systems posed in a bounded domain of $\mathbb{R}^3$ and equipped with boundary conditions, existence of weak solutions by using regularization techniques, linearization and the Schauder fixed point theorem.
