Magnetization dynamics symmetry plays important roles in magnetization switching. Here we study magnetic field and spin torque induced magnetization switching. Spin moment transferring from polarized itinerant electrons to local magnetization provides a magnetization switching mechanism without using external magnetic field. Besides its importance in fundamental magnetization switching dynamics, spin torque magnetization switching has great application potential for future nanoscale magnetoelectronic devices. The paper explores magnetization dynamics symmetry effects on spin torque induced magnetization switching, and its interactions with random fluctuations. We will illustrate the consequences of magnetization dynamics symmetry on the critical switching current magnitude and the thermal stability energy of spin torque induced magnetization switching, which are the two most important design criteria for nanoscale spin torque magnetic devices. The concept of Logarithmic magnetization susceptibility is used to extract symmetry and damping information on spin torque induced nonlinear magnetization dynamic processes, and provides paths to control spin torque induced switching in a fluctuating environment.
