The interplay between spin waves and magnetic texture represents the information exchange between the fast and slow dynamical parts of magnetic systems. Here we formulate a set of magnonic torques acting on background magnetic texture, by extracting time-invariant information from the fast precessing spin waves. Under the frame of magnonic torques, we use theoretical formulations and micromagnetic simulations to investigate the spin-wave-driven domain wall motion in two typical symmetry-breaking situations: the rotational symmetry broken by the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction and the translational symmetry broken by magnetic damping. The torque-based microscopic analyses provide compact yet quantitative tools to reinterpret the magnetic texture dynamics induced by spin waves, beyond the conventional framework of global momentum conservation.
