Few subjects in science are more difficult to understand than magnetism, according to Encyclopedia Britannica. However, there is a strong demand today for scientists and engineers with skills in magnetism because of the growing number of technological applications utilizing this phenomenon. This textbook responds to the need for a comprehensive introduction of the basic concepts of the science. Introduction to Magnetism and Magnetic Materials has been thoroughly revised since the first edition to include recent developments in the field. The early chapters comprise a discussion of the fundamentals of magnetism. These chapters include more than 60 sample problems with complete solutions to reinforce learning. The later chapters review the most significant recent developments in four important areas of magnetism: hard and soft magnetic materials, magnetic recording, and magnetic evaluation of materials. These later chapters also provide a survey of the most important areas of magnetic materials for practical applications. Extensive references to the principal publications in magnetism are listed at the end of each chapter, which offer the reader rapid access to more specialized literature. Students in various scientific areas will benefit from this book, including those in physics, materials science, metallurgy, and electrical engineering.

Over the years there have been a number of excellent textbooks on the subject of magnetism. Among these we must include Bozorth's Ferromagnetism (1950), Chikazumi's Physics of Magnetism (1964) and Cullity's Introduction to Magnetic Materials (1972). However at present there is no up to date general textbook on magnetism. This book will, I hope, satisfy this need. It is a book for the newcomer to magnetism, and so I anticipate it will be useful as a text for final-year undergraduate courses in magnetism and magnetic materials or for graduate courses. I would also hope that it will be useful to the researcher who, for one reason or another, is beginning a study of magnetism and needs an introductory general text. In this case the extensive references to the literature of magnetism given in the text should prove useful in enabling the reader to gain rapid access to the most important papers on the subject. For the expert there are of course already numerous excellent specialist works, of which the most significant is Wohlfarth's four-volume series Ferromagnetic Materials. The book was conceived as a whole and deals with the fundamentals of magnetism in Chapters 1 to 11, and the principal applications in Chapters 12 to 16.

In December 2002, the world's first commercial magnetic levitation super-train went into operation in Shanghai. The train is held just above the rails by magnetic levitation (maglev) and can travel at a speed of 400 km/hr, completing the 30km journey from the city to the airport in minutes. Now consumers are enjoying 50 GB hard drives compared to 0.5 GB hard drives ten years ago. Achievements in magnetic materials research have made dreams of a few decades ago reality. The objective of the four volume reference, Handbook of Advanced Magnetic Materials, is to provide a comprehensive review of recent progress in magnetic materials research. Each chapter will have an introduction to give a clear definition of basic and important concepts of the topic. The details of the topic are then elucidated theoretically and experimentally. New ideas for further advancement are then discussed. Sufficient references are also included for those who wish to read the original work. In the last decade, one of the most significant thrust areas of materials research has been nanostructured magnetic materials. There are several critical sizes that control the behavior of a magnetic material, and size effects become especially critical when dimensions approach a few nanometers, where quantum phenomena appear. The first volume of the book, Nanostructured Advanced Magnetic Materials, has therefore been devoted to the recent development of nanostructured magnetic materials, emphasizing size effects. Our understanding of magnetism has advanced with the establishment of the theory of atomic magnetic moments and itinerant magnetism. Simulation is a powerful tool for exploration and explanation of properties of various magnetic materials. Simulation also provides insight for further development of new materials. Naturally, before any simulation can be started, a model must be constructed. This requires that the material be well characterized. Therefore the second volume, Characterization and Simulation provides a comprehensive review of both experimental methods and simulation techniques for the characterization of magnetic materials. After an introduction, each section gives a detailed description of the method and the following sections provide examples and results of the method. Finally further development of the method will be discussed. The success of each type of magnetic material depends on its properties and cost which are directly related to its fabrication process. Processing of a material can be critical for development of artificial materials such as multilayer films, clusters, etc. Moreover, cost-effective processing usually determines whether a material can be commercialized. In recent years processing of materials has continuously evolved from improvement of traditional methods to more sophisticated and novel methods. The objective of the third volume, Processing of Advanced Magnetic Materials, is to provide a comprehensive review of recent developments in processing of advanced magnetic materials. Each chapter will have an introduction and a section to provide a detailed description of the processing method. The following sections give detailed descriptions of the processing, properties and applications of the relevant materials. Finally the potential and limitation of the processing method will be discussed. The properties of a magnetic material can be characterized by intrinsic properties such as anisotropy, saturation magnetization and extrinsic properties such as coercivity. The properties of a magnetic material can be affected by its chemical composition and processing route. With the continuous search for new materials and invention of new processing routes, magnetic properties of materials cover a wide spectrum of soft magnetic materials, hard magnetic materials, recording materials, sensor materials and others. The objective of the fourth volume, Properties and Applications of Advanced Magnetic Materials, is to provide a comprehensive review of recent development of various magnetic materials and their applications. Each chapter will have an introduction of the materials and the principles of their applications. The following sections give a detailed description of the processing, properties and applications. Finally the potential and limitation of the materials will be discussed.

Although it is one of the oldest physical phenomena studied, magnetism con tinues to be an active and challenging subject. This is due to the fact that mag netic phenomena represent a complex application of quantum mechanics, statistical physics, and electromagnetism. As new magnetic materials are syn thesized and new experimental conditions realized, the very fundamentals of these subjects are expanded. Thus, the Kondo effect, like superconductivity, stimulated the development of many-body techniques; spin glasses with their competing interactions are leading to advances in statistical physics; and angle and spin-resolved photoemission is probing details of transition-metal electronic states never before possible. I have not tried to incorporate all the new developments in this subject since the first edition ten years ago. My purpose is still the same - to use linear response theory to establish a common conceptual basis for understanding a variety of magnetic phenomena. Many recent developments fit into this frame work and have been included.
