Magnetic Contribution to Specific Heats

The behavior of magnetic materials at low temperatures is of widespread interest, be it in demagnetization techniques to produce very low temperatures or in the use of superconducting magnets. Therefore, it is worthwhile to consider the specific heats of magnetic materials separately. It is well known that the magnetic energy depends upon the operative magnetic field H, and so it is first necessary to inquire how the specific heat is defined for a system capable of magnetization.
