The Theory of Magnetism Made Simple:An Introduction To Physical Concepts And To Some Useful Mathematical Methods

  title={The Theory of Magnetism Made Simple:An Introduction To Physical Concepts And To Some Useful Mathematical Methods},
  author={Daniel Charles Mattis},
The original edition of "The Theory of Magnetism" developed the various relevant topics using modern methods adapted for the many-body problem. It presented and taught the fermionic field theory central to Onsager's analysis of the statistical mechanics of the two-dimensional Ising model of magnetism. In its pages the Lieb-Mattis theorems on magnetic ordering of electronic energy levels and on the absence of ferromagnetism in one dimension were restated and proved in a form accessible to… 
A Brief history of mangnetism
In this article an overview of the historical development of the key ideas in the field of magnetism is presented. The presentation is semi-technical in nature.Starting by noting down important
Theory of Orbital Magnetization in Solids
In this review article, we survey the relatively new theory of orbital magnetization in solids — often referred to as the "modern theory of orbital magnetization" — and its applications.
Magnetism in matter before the discovery of quantum spin: Bohr's less well-known contribution to the transition from classical to quantum physics.
How does one explain magnetic effects in matter when one views matter as a collection of classical charges in motion? The answer is: not at all! This is one of the points that Niels Bohr made in his
Bogoliubov's Vision: Quasiaverages and Broken Symmetry to Quantum Protectorate and Emergence
In the present interdisciplinary review we focus on the applications of the symmetry principles to quantum and statistical physics in connection with some other branches of science. The profound and
New kind of parameterization applied to the fermi surface of a crystalline solid. Part I: electron observables and curvature parameters examined on the surface
Abstract: A magnetic field applied to a crystalline solid causes the electron states on the Fermi surface to circulate along the orbits located on the planes normal to the applied field. For a
Symmetry Aspects of the Band Structure and Motion Equations Applied in Calculating the Cyclotron Frequency of Electrons in Metals
A combined symmetry of the electron Hamiltonian and that of the Lorentz equation provide a non-linear oscillator problem of high symmetry and a detailed approach to the electron circulation, also in more complex band structures, becomes a relatively easy task.
Evaluation of the effect of various mechanisms on the magnetoresistance of lanthanum manganites La0.85Sr0.15MnO3 with activation-type conductivity
A method is proposed that allows one to divide the magnetoresistance (MR) observed in manganites into three mechanisms: dimensional, orientational, and magnetic. The first two mechanisms are
Breaking of Galilean Invariance in the Hydrodynamic Formulation of Ferromagnetic Thin Films.
By reinterpreting the governing Landau-Lifshitz equation of motion, an exact set of equations of dispersive hydrodynamic form are derived that are amenable to analytical study even when full nonlinearity and exchange dispersion are included.
Spin ordering in three-dimensional crystals with strong competing exchange interactions
In this paper we discuss magnetic ordering in three-dimensional crystals in which Heisenberg exchange interactions appear to dominate. Particular emphasis is placed on systems with strong competing
