pages xi and xii (Contents pages): for all pages from
141 onwards subtract one from the number given

page 13, the last two lines of the equation in the marginal
note should read:

page 21, equation (2.14), insert V next to 6m_{e}
on the right hand part of the equation

page 25, equation 2.25: change sign of numerator

page 25, just above equation 2.28 an extra factor of
B needs to be added to both sides of the
expression following "In small applied fields"

page 26, equation 2.30 should have a minus sign

page 30, insert µ_{B} before <0 in equation 2.48
and µ_{0} after 2 in the first term in equation 2.49

page 34, Table 2.2, the term symbol for Sm^{3+}
should be ^{6}H_{5/2} (not ^{6}I_{5/2})

page 35, penultimate paragraph delete
"angular" (appears twice)

page 36, remove minus sign in Boltzmann factor on the line before
equation (2.58)

page 50, Fig. 3.6: the levels d_{z2}
and d_{x2y2} should be swapped

page 58, equation (3.28) and (3.29), T_{1} should be T_{2}

page 72, problem (3.5) line 3, change eqn. 2.9 to eqn. 2.38

page 82, equation (4.14) change S to S_{i}

page 83, equation 4.23: change N to n

page 84, problem 4.8, last bit shoud be
6J, 0, 4J, 6J and not 0, 2J and 6J.

page 87, penultimate paragraph M_{s}
should be M throughout.

page 89, RHS of equation 5.11 needs a factor of 1/T

page 109, equation 5.56 should be:

page 117, last paragraph: At T=0 the system is perfectly
ordered apart from quantum fluctuations

page 120, in the list of exactly solvable models, (1) should read
Most cases and (3) should read Many cases. (There
are some pathological exceptions!)

page 121, 9 lines after equation, "applicable to isotropic
ferromagnets"

page 127, Fig. 6.18: note that although
plotted as if from a tripleaxis spectrometer, the
data were obtained on a timeofflight instrument

page 143, in the line before equation (7.14), the deficit
of electrons with spindown should be prepended with a minus
sign, i.e.
n_{downarrow}=(1/2)g(E_{F})µ_{B\
}B.

page 144, equation 7.23 is missing a factor of µ_{B}
on the RHS

page 146, end of last term of equation (7.26) change ^{2}) to
)^{2}

page 151, equations 7.47 and 7.48 should be:

page 156, equation 7.85, change 1+4k_{F}^{2}/q^{2}
to 1+q^{2}/4k_{F}^{2}

page 169: Figure 8.3: the reference should be 1979, not 1997.
The left axis should be , not C.

page 176, the formula for the phone number compound should end O_{41}

page 196: Table A.1: the cgs unit of flux is G cm^{2}, not
G cm^{2}

page 210: Eqn. C.56, m_{e}
should be squared; Eqn. C.59, a 1/(m_{e}^{2}c^{2})
term is missing.

page 220: Before Equation E.13, change entropy to magnetization

page 223: Answer to 2.3, add: if you assume Cu^{2+} is
spin 1/2, g=2, and use density and RMM. The answer is
3.35x10^{5} J/T if you use the measured susceptibility
from table 2.1

page 223: cos^{4}, not cos^{2} in Equation F.21

page 225: Equation F.46, change the denominator
1+e^{2y} to 1+e^{2y}

page 225: After Equation F.54, the equation should read:

page 228: End of equation F.88, the final term
should be
