Permanent Magnet Materials and their Application

This book is a comprehensive design text on permanent magnets and their applications. The author begins with a brief overview of the theory of magnetism and explains the behavior of the different classes of permanent magnets and the various production processes that lead to quite diverse material characteristics. The core of the book is a detailed treatment of the methods used to design permanent magnets, including assessments of the changes they experience under practical operating conditions. The volume also describes modern analytical techniques including the finite element method, with reference to the accurate simulation of permanent magnetic materials. Electrical engineers, condensed matter physicists and materials scientists will find this book useful.

You have to make this one a permanent addition to your professional library of textbooks. With a crisp easy style, the author draws an easy to follow map on designing and setting up permanent magnets. The last two chapters seem to contain highly advanced information in a sketchy form, but really offers a quick review of different types and applications that one can skip without losing out on the chief benefits of this powerfully packaged tutorial session, which I've coined to describe this textbook. For example, The development of the leading formulas alone is well worth the price of the textbook. Grab this one before they're all sold out!
