In this book, the first on the interdisciplinary subject of ferrohydrodynamics, Dr Rosensweig develops a framework for understanding the behaviour and dynamics of magnetic fluids. Magnetic fluid, like iron, becomes magnetized in the presence of an external magnetic field, but also exhibits properties characteristic of fluids. The treatment is self-contained and builds stepwise on the concepts of electromagnetism, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. The author also discusses some unusual associated phenomena such as remote positioning, levitation of dense objects, prevention of flow instabilities and the self-organization of the magnetic fluid into patterns.
