This is the first comprehensive tutorial to treat the subject of magnetism on the graduate level. The book examines four major aspects of its subject: electronic states of magnetic ions in crystals and their exchange interactions; ferro and antiferromagnetism in exchange coupled localized spin systems; magnetic properties of itenerant electron systems; and Kondo effects and related topics.
