    A simulation study for the magnetization process is performed for the multidomain state in a chiral p -wave superconductor, using the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau theory. The external field penetrates inside as coreless vortices through the domain wall, forming the vortex sheet structure. We find that, with increasing magnetic fields, the domain walls move so that the unstable domains shrink to vanish. Therefore, the single domain structure is realized at higher fields.
