During 1986 and 1987, when I was working at the Imperial College of Science and Technology in London with E.P. Wohlfarth, I was asked to prepare some lecture notes following his lecture “Magnetic properties of metals and alloys”. Peter Wohlfarth had planned to use these lecture notes in a book about itinerant magnetism he wanted us to write together. Due to his untimely death this project was never realized. Back in Vienna I started to write up the lecture notes for a graduate course, which to some extent was based on these original lectures but in many respects has been modernized by including more recent results of band structure calculations and band theoretical results. During a two month visit of Melbourne University in 1993, I met G. Fletcher from Monash University (Melbourne) who kindly offered to critically read the manuscript. His comments are highly appreciated. The present greatly enlarged version was mainly written during a sabbatical at the university of Uppsala during 2000. I am grateful to Börje Johansson for making this possible and to Clas Persson for reading the manuscript and providing me with lots of useful comments.
