This book covers both basic physics of ferromagnetism, such as magnetic moment, exchange coupling, magnetic anisotropy, and recent progress in advanced ferromagnetic materials. Special focus is placed on NdFeB permanent magnets and the materials studied in the field of spintronics (explaining the development of tunnel magnetoresistance effect through the so-called giant magnetoresistance effect).
