Long one of nature's most fascinating phenomena, magnetism was once the subject of many superstitions. Magnets were thought useful to thieves, effective as a love potion or as a cure for gout or spasms. They could remove sorcery from women and put demons to flight and even reconcile married couples. It was said that a lodestone pickled in the salt... more...

Frustrated spin systems have been first investigated five decades ago. Well-known examples include the Ising model on the antiferromagnetic triangular lattice studied by G H Wannier in 1950 and the Heisenberg helical structure discovered independently by A Yoshimori, J Villain and T A Kaplan in 1959. However, many properties of frustrated systems are... more...
Materials Processing In Magnetic Fields - Proceedings Of The International Workshop On Materials Analysis And Processing In Magnetic FieldsWorld Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 274.00
Processing in magnetic fields is a rapidly expanding research area with a wide range of promising applications in materials science, development and design. Numerous research centers dedicated to materials research and processing in magnetic fields have been created around the world. This volume brings together contributions from these centers to review... more...
Megagauss Magnetic Field Generation, Its Application To Science And Ultra-high Pulsed-power Technology - Procs Of The Viiith Int'l Conf On Megagauss Magnetic Field Generation And Related TopicsWorld Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 398.00
The generation of megagauss fields for science and technology is an exciting area at the extremes of parameter space, involving the application and controlled handling of extremely high power and energy densities in small volumes and on short time scales. New physical phenomena, technological challenges, and the selection and development of materials,... more...

Hysterisis is a system property that is fundamental to a range of engineering applications as the components of systems with hysterisis are able to react differently to different forces applied to them. Control theory is used to model these complex systems and cause them to behave in the desired manner; the Bouc-Wen model is a well-known semi-physical... more...

The book gives a comprehensive account of magnetism. It spans the historical development, the physical foundations and discusses new and continuing research underlying the field. Magnetism?s fundamental physical concepts are reviewed in a coherent fashion. more...

"Quantum Theory of Magnetism" is the only book that deals with the phenomenon of magnetism from the point of view of "linear response". That is, how does a magnetic material respond when excited by a magnetic field? That field may be uniform, or spatially varying, static or time dependent. Previous editions have dealt primarily with the magnetic response.... more...

Lost Causes in and Beyond Physics deals with a selection of research topics mostly from theoretical physics that have been shown to be a dead-end or continue at least to be highly controversial. Nevertheless, whether it is about Bohmian mechanics, physics from Fisher information or the quantum theory of the brain, small but dedicated research communities... more...

The field of magnetism is rapidly advancing in this new millennium. This book provides a broad overview of all aspects of magnetism and addresses the relationship between apparently unconnected topics in magnetism. more...

This book throws some light on poorly understood aspects of the motion of magnetization in magnetic solids, particularly the effects of dissipative mechanisms. Aside from its practical aspects (such as magnetic recording), it addresses readers interested in the basic physics of nonlinear phenomena. - ;Electrons in solids behave like microscopic bar... more...
