#### Undulators, Wigglers and Their Applications

CRC Press 2003; US$ 319.00A "wiggler" is an insertion device used for spatially concentrating radiation for research purposes, and an "undulator" is a multi-period wiggler. Undulator and wiggler devices are inserted in a free straight section of the storage ring of the synchrotron. This book explores the radiation produced by these insertion devices, the engineering and associated... more...

#### Computational Methods for Electromagnetic and Optical Systems

Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 149.95This text introduces and examines a variety of spectral computational techniques - including k-space theory, Floquet theory and beam propagation - that are used to analyze electromagnetic and optical problems. The book also presents a solution to Maxwell's equations from a set of first order coupled partial differential equations. more...

#### Electromagnetic Modeling by Finite Element Methods

CRC Press 2003; US$ 132.95Unlike any other source in the field, this valuable reference clearly examines key aspects of the finite element method (FEM) for electromagnetic analysis of low-frequency electrical devices. The authors examine phenomena such as nonlinearity, mechanical force, electrical circuit coupling, vibration, heat, and movement for applications in the electrical,... more...

#### The Quantum Theory Of Magnetism

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 114.00 US$ 103.74This book is intended as a basic text for a two-term graduate course for physicists, engineers and chemists with a background in quantum and statistical mechanics. What sets it apart from other publications on the subject is its extensive use of Greenâ€™s function techniques and its detailed discussion of the application of the mean-field approximation... more...

#### Hidden Attraction

Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 25.95Long 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...

#### Magnetic Monopoles

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 100.75“One would be surprised if Nature had made no use of it.” P.A.M. Dirac According to some dictionaries, one meaning of the notion of “beauty” is “symmetry”. Probably, beauty is not entirely “in the eye of the beholder”. It seemstoberelatedtothesymmetryoftheobject.Fromaphysicalviewpoint, this de?nition is very attractive: it allows us to describe a central... more...

#### Frustrated Spin Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 169.00 US$ 153.79Frustrated 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...

#### Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics

CRC Press 2006; US$ 125.95Electromagnetics is too important in too many fields for knowledge to be gathered on the fly. A deep understanding gained through structured presentation of concepts and practical problem solving is the best way to approach this important subject. Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics provides such an understanding, distilling the most important... more...

#### Electromagnetic Theory and Computation

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 46.00This book explores the connection between algebraic structures in topology and computational methods for 3-dimensional electric and magnetic field computation. more...

#### Concise Encyclopedia of Magnetic and Superconducting Materials

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 435.00Magnetic and superconducting materials pervade every avenue of the technological world – from microelectronics and mass-data storage to medicine and heavy engineering. Both areas have experienced a recent revitalisation of interest due to the discovery of new materials, and the re-evaluation of a wide range of basic mechanisms and phenomena. This... more...
