    The stripe model of domain structure in multilayers is studied by micromagnetic simulation. The results indicate a strong reduction of the effective domain wall energy (by dipolar effects). Domain width measurements on sputtered Co/Pd multilayers are compared with the theory. The estimated exchange stiffness is comparable with that of bulk Co. The effects of interface roughness and of interlayer exchange are discussed.
