The IEEE Press is pleased to reissue this essential book for
understanding the basis of modern magnetic materials. Diamagnetism,
paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, ferrimagnetism, and
antiferromagnetism are covered in an integrated manner -- unifying
subject matter from physics, chemistry, metallurgy, and
engineering. Magnetic phenomena are discussed both from an
experimental and theoretical point of view. The underlying physical
principles are presented first, followed by macroscopic or
microscopic theories. Although quantum mechanical theories are
given, a phenomenological approach is emphasized. More than half
the book is devoted to a discussion of strongly coupled dipole
systems, where the molecular field theory is emphasized.
The Physical Principles of Magnetism is a classic "must
read" for anyone working in the magnetics, electromagnetics,
computing, and communications fields.
