RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 50906524 LA English T1 Micromagnetism and the microstructure of ferromagnetic solids A1 Kronmüller, Helmut., Fähnle, Manfred,, PB Cambridge University Press PP New York YR 2003 SN 0521331358 9780521331357 AB The main theme of this book is micromagnetism and microstructure as well as the analysis of the relations between characteristic properties of the hysteresis loop and microstructure. Also presented is an analysis of the role of microstructure in the fundamental magnetic properties (for example magnetorestriction or critical behaviour) of crystalline and amorphous alloys. The authors apply the theory of micromagnetism to all aspects of advanced magnetic materials including domain patterns and magnetization processes under the influence of defect structures. Coverage includes modern developments in computational micromagnetism and its application to spin structures of small particles and platelets. It will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in condensed matter, physics, electrical engineering and materials science, as well as to industrial researchers working in the electrotechnical and recording industry.
