Transition metal oxides have a long and distinguished history. They are familiar today as magnets, prized as materials for electronics, and aroused new interest with the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity. The aim of this book is to describe the basic physics underlying the fascinating properties of these materials. At the same time recent progress in the field is reviewed, hence making this book valuable reading for both students and researchers.
