Hysteresis in Magnetism: for Physicists, Materials Scientists, and Engineers
From Book News, Inc. 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. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Kurzbeschreibung This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of hysteresis in magnetism and the mathermatical tools used to describe it. Hysteresis in Magnetism discusses from a unified viewpoint the relations of hysteresis to Maxwell's 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...
