The current-induced torques in magnetic layers, with particular emphasis on spin torques between a ferromagnetic layer and a compensated antiferromagnetic layer of various symmetries, are considered. The general conditions under which these current induced torques can stabilize the out-of-plane configuration of the ferromagnet are provided, along with numerical results for specific models. The effects of phase breaking scattering and their experimental implications are also discussed.
