This book is an application of quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics to the field of magnetism. A large part of the book is devoted to a detailed treatment of the connections between electronic properties and magnetism, and how they differ in the various known magnetic systems. Current trends are exposed and explained for a large class of alloys and compounds. The modern field of artificially layered systems - known as multilayers - and their industrial applications are dealt with in detail. The book also relates the rich thermodynamic properties of magnets to the ab initio results originating from the electronic structure.

Jurgen Kubler, Professor of Theoretical Physics, Darmstadt University of Technology, GermanyReview:
"[This work] is a unique contribution to the study of magnetism, in that it attempts to describe a substantial part of the field using the local density functional approximation (LDA). . . . Kübler does an excellent job of describing LDA and making connections between the electronic structure of several materials and their magnetic properties. . . . The book will be useful to many researchers, theorists, and experimentalists alike. . . . It offers a personal and focused view of itinerant magnetism based on LDA from a leading expert in the field, and it describes in detail the relationship between electronic structure and magnetic properties of itinerant electrons in realistic systems." -- Physics Today
