Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.

Reviews provided by Syndetics


Jiles (Iowa State University) has written an excellent, up-to-date book, useful for final-year undergraduates or beginning graduates studying magnetism and magnetic materials, and certainly useful to researchers in physics, materials science, and electrical engineering who need an introduction to the subject matter. Topics are grouped to suit the primary interests of each group of readers. The first two-thirds of the book deals with the fundamentals of magnetism, with the remaining chapters on principal applications. For each chapter there are an excellent collection of references to the literature, examples, and exercises (the solutions for all are given at the end of the book). Highly recommended for any library serving undergraduate programs in physics or engineering, or graduate programs in physics, engineering, or materials science.-H.
