### Books and Papers

- Magnetic Materials : Fundamentals and Device Applications by N.A. Spaldin,
Cambridge University Press (2003)

A good overall explanation of ferromagnetism which also covers other types of magnetism and some applications.

- The Feynman Lectures on Physics by R.P. Feynman, R.B. Leighton and M. Sands,
Addison-Wesley Publishing Company (1970)

Provides a complete explanation of magnetism including the mathematics and qualitative explanations.

- P.A.M. Dirac, The quantum theory of the electron, Proc. R. Soc. London
A 117 610-612 (1928)

- P.A.M. Dirac, The quantum theory of the electron Part II, Proc. R. Soc. London A 118 351-361 (1928)

These are the original papers by Dirac in which the spin of the electron was derived.
