The fundamental physics of metallic magnetism is not yet satisfactorily understood and continues to be interesting. For instance, magnetism is anticipated to play a principal role in producing high Tc superconductivity of oxides. This book has two major objectives. First, it intends to provide an introduction to magnetism of metals in a broad sense. Besides pursuing the mechanism of metallic magnetism itself, it attempts to find and actively analyze magnetic causes hidden hitherto unnoticed behind various physical phenomena. The author's goal is to expose the fundamental role played by phonons in the mechanism of metallic magnetism. He demonstrates how such a view also helps to elucidate a broad spectrum of other observations. The second objective is to concisely introduce the standard many-body points of view and techniques necessary in studying solid physics in general.
