Description

A long overdue update, this edition of Introduction to Magnetism and Magnetic Materials is a complete revision of its predecessor. While it provides relatively minor updates to the first two sections, the third section contains vast updates to reflect the enormous progress made in applications in the past 15 years, particularly in magnetic recording. The book includes significant updates to soft magnetic materials, hard magnetic materials, magnetic data storage, and magnetic evaluation of materials. It also adds new information on magneto-transport, small particles, nanomagnetism, magnetic semiconductors, spintronics, and high-frequency magnetism.

See What’s New in the Third Edition

  • New coverage of applications of magnetism and magnetic materials, especially in magnetic recording
  • Additional exercises with complete worked-out solutions at the end of the book
  • Updated references at the end of each chapter

The book adopts an unusual but effectively focused question-answer framework. Each major head is introduced by a question followed by an attempt to answer. This approach maintains attention to the subject matter at hand and clarifies the objective of each section without needless digression. Each chapter also features updated and new exercise problems, accompanied by a solutions manual at the back of the book. This edition gives you an excellent introduction to the key and current theories, practices, and applications of magnetics and magnetic materials.

Reviews

"While the second edition provided many problems to enhance the learning and became the most-loved textbook for the first course in magnetism, the third edition includes many applications, new magnetic materials, and new topics like nanomagnetism. The much-awaited third edition is a must for magnetism enthusiasts."

—Arti Kashyap, Indian Institute of Technology Mandi

"Understanding magnetism is one of the most difficult challenges in physics. This book develops the concept of magnetism starting from basic electromagnetism in chapter 1 and gradually introduces advanced concepts all the way to quantum magnetism in chapter 11. Various fundamental concepts are explained by answering key questions posed in the beginning of each topic. This makes the book quite interactive for the reader. The second part of this book covers a wide range of applications of magnetic materials including advanced techniques such as magnetic imaging, magnetic recording etc. Each topic is discussed at length covering almost all situations that may appear in real materials. The book also contains a large number of problems which are very useful for undergraduate students."

—Dr. Tulika Maitra, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee

"…a great contribution to the subject of magnetic materials."

—Edward Della Torre, Director, Institute for Magnetic Research, George Washington University, Washington, D.C., USA

"…an excellent introductory text."

—Roy Chantrell, University of York, UK

"…a welcome update. …a useful textbook for students approaching magnetism for the first time, as well as a quick reference for anybody seeking information about notions and facts pertaining to magnetism and magnetic materials."

—Giorgio Bertotti, INRIM, Torino, Italy

"…distinctly pedagogical; one would expect no less from one of the world’s foremost educators and academic leaders in magnetics."

—Ron B. Goldfarb, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Boulder, Colorado, USA

"…the author plainly conveys the main physical ideas lying behind the macroscopic phenomenology of magnetism in the materials and their ultimate realization in actual technological applications."

—Dr. Fausto Fiorillo, INRIM, Torino, Italy

"The title of this book is somewhat misleading. Though this is not an exhaustive treatment of the subject, especially with regard to materials, it goes well beyond an introduction. The text effectively balances theory, practical use, and assessment of understanding, thus making it an excellent choice for an advanced magnetism course. The author's discussion of magnetism on the microscopic scale is particularly noteworthy and leads readers to both a neoclassic and a modern understanding of the underlying processes involved in magnetism. A plethora of graphs and tables helps illustrate the points being made, but Jiles (Iowa State Univ.) does not overuse this communicative form. His writing is clear, pointed, and accessible to serious readers. Although there were times when this reviewer felt the number of equations could have been reduced without sacrificing clarity, these instances were few. References at the end of each chapter provide all the background needed to access advanced materials or seek a more basic understanding. This new edition (2nd ed., 1998; 1st ed., CH, Jan'92, 29-2776) has been thoroughly revised, with much new material presented in section 3. Overall, this is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to understand this rather complicated and difficult subject."
