Magnetic fine particles find a large number of applications, perhaps most notably as particulate recording media. In addition, the ideas of fine particle magnetism are applicable in a number of areas as diverse as geomagnetism and biomagnetism. The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the fundamental aspects of fine particle magnets, including magnetisation reversal phenomena, interaction effects and time dependence, and to describe applications to geomagnetism and recording media.
