Introduction to magnetism
Univ. Grenoble Alpes/CNRS, Institut Néel, 38042 Grenoble, France
This text corresponds to an introductory lecture given at “Journées de la Neutronique” in May 2012 in Seignosse. It is meant as a short reminder about magnetism from its microscopic origins to its applications in many materials and devices which surround us. Only electronic magnetism is treated.
