The Weiss-Heisenberg Theory of Ferro-magnetism and a New Rule Concerning Magnetostriction and Magneto-Resistance

Article metrics

Abstract

IT is considered an open question1 whether the Weiss–Heisenberg model or the band model, which is based on the conception of the itinerant electron, is the more appropriate one for the description of ferromagnetic phenomena. On the whole, the original Weiss treatment translated into modern language is surprisingly powerful when compared with numerous later attempts at an improvement.
