Some 120 papers look at spin polarized transport; spin dynamics, spin waves, and spin-wave resonance; spin reorientation phase transitions; spin-orbit and exchange interactions, magnetic anisotropy, and magneto-restriction; dynamics of domain structures and domain walls; magnetic nanostructure and films; magnetism and nanomaterials; low-dimensional magnetism; the magnetism of strongly correlated systems; magneto-transport and magneto-optics.
In materials where the spin-orbit interaction is strong, a spin-up electron will be deflected in one direction on encountering a nuclear magnetic field, while a spin-down nucleus will be deflected in the opposite direction - an effect dubbed the quantum spin Hall effect.
The second edition has been extensively updated and expanded with 200 pages of new material, which includes the addition of a new chapter on the spin-orbit coupling in semiconductor heterostructures and considerable expansion of the chapters dealing with trapped atomic gases, density functional calculations, current response to an electromagnetic field, and the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock and Monte Carlo approaches.
