Overview

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of hysteresis in magnetism and of the mathematical tools used to describe it. Hysteresis in Magnetism discusses from a unified viewpoint the relationsof hysteresis to Maxwells equations, equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, non-linear system dynamics, micromagnetics, and domain theory. These aspects are then applied to the interpretation of magnetization reversal mechanisms: coherent rotation and switching in magnetic particles, stochastic domain wall motion and the Barkhausen effect, coercivity mechanisms and magnetic viscosity, rate-dependent hysteresis and eddy-current losses. The book emphasizes the connection between basic physical ideas and phenomenological models of interest to applications, and, in particular, to the conceptual path going from Maxwells equations and thermodynamics to micromagnetics and to Preisach hysteresis modeling.

Key Features
* The reader will get insight into the importance and role of hysteresis in magnetism; In particular, he will learn:
* which are the fingerprints of hysteresis in magnetism
* which are the situations in which hysteresis may appear
* how to describe mathematically these situations
* how to apply these descriptions to magnetic materials
* how to interpret and predict magnetic hysteresis phenomena observed experimentally

Audience: Electrical engineers. Graduate students and researchers in physics, who are interested in magnetism and magnetic materials and, more generally, in the physics of hysteresis phenomena; materials scientists and engineers workingon the development and application of magnetic materials; and mathematicians investigating the mathematical structure of hysteresis non-linearities.

Booknews
Leader in the field Bertotti (Instituto Elettrotecnico Nazionale Galileo Ferraris, Torino, Italy) weds theoretical insights and technological advances in a classical area of physics and engineering that continues to mesmerize diverse scientists. The description of hysteresis, the central feature of ferromagnetic materials below the Curie temperature, also attracts mathematicians. The author illuminates diverse aspects of the phenomenon and their complex relations under the main topic headings of: Maxwell's equations and thermodynamics, magnetic free energy, the magnetization process, and Preisach systems. Includes appended material on systems of units, vector relations, reciprocity theorems, micromagnetic parameters, and stochastic processes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
