This book is for graduate students and researchers who wish to understand theoretical mechanisms lying behind macroscopic properties of magnetic thin films. It provides a detailed description of basic theoretical methods and techniques of simulation to help readers in their research projects.

The first part of the book contains 6 chapters. Chapters 1 to 5 focus on the fundamental theory of bulk magnetic materials. Chapter 6 is devoted to the presentation of the Monte Carlo simulation methods. Exercises and problems are provided at the end of each of these chapters for self-training. The second part contains 11 chapters devoted to the main topic of the book, namely "physics of magnetic thin films: theory and simulation."

Written as a research paper, each chapter focuses on a subject and also presents the state-of-the-art literature on the subject and the motivation of the chapter. A detailed description of the techniques and the presentation of the results are then shown with discussion.

Hung T. Diep is distinguished professor of physics at CY Cergy Paris University (formerly University of Cergy-Pontoise), France, since 1991. He obtained his doctorate in science at the University Paris Denis Diderot, France, in 1979. As a theorist, he worked on condensed matter physics and statistical physics focusing on phase transitions in frustrated spin systems, surface magnetism, and transport phenomena. He was also professor at University Paris Denis Diderot until 1991.
