Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 158)


This chapter reviews mostly the basic macroscopic magnetism. It contains the sections of Basic magnetic laws and magnetic quantities; Magnetic Coulomb’s law, static magnetic field, and magnetic circuit; Zeeman energy, magnetization energy, and magnetostatic energy; Thermodynamics for magnetic media; and Hamiltonian of an electric charged particle in static electric and magnetic fields; and Appendices 1 to 3.
