The intent of the book is to discuss the physics and engineering of magneto-resistive heads which are playing an extremely important role in the modern technology of hard disk drives. The book is comprehensive and self-contained. Most of the material is presented in a non-mathematical manner to make it more "digestible" for students and practical engineers. Each chapter concludes with a listing of the principle references in order to facilitate the reader's further study. The author is a well-recognised expert in the field and published The Foundations of Magnetic Recording with Academic Press in 1987.
* Provides important coverage of the physics and engineering of magneto-resistive heads
* Non-mathematical presentation facilitates use by students and practicing engineers
* Concludes each chapter with a listing of references for further study
* Volume is the first in the new Academic Press series in ELECTROMAGNETISM

The magnetic recording industry is a rapidly growing field in electrical engineering, materials science, and applied physics. The intent of this book is to discuss the physics and engineering of magneto-resistive heads, which are playing an increasingly important role in the modern technology of hard disk drives. The book is comprehensive and self-contained. Most of the material is presented in a nonmathematical manner to make it more "digestible" for researchers, students, developers, and practicing engineers. Each chapter concludes with a listing of the principal references in order to facilitate the reader's further study.
The book is written by a well-recognized expert in the field of magnetic recording. It represents the first volume in the new Academic Press series in Electromagnetism edited by Professor Isaak Mayergoyz of the University of Maryland.
Prof. Mayergoyz received his Master and Ph.D. degrees in the former Soviet Union where he worked as a senior research scientist in the Institute of Cybernetics of Ukranian Academy of Sciences before his emigration to the United States. On his arrival to the United States in 1980, he became a full professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of University of Maryland, College Park. He served as a consultant for many years for the Research and Development Center of General Electric Company and has been selected as a visiting research fellow of this center. He has published more than 300 scientific papers and patents as well as eight scientific books. He has been recognized by many awards at the University of Maryland and at the Magnetics Society of IEEE. He is a recognized authority in magnetics which is the area of this book.
