This volume includes the contributions to the Seventeenth International Workshop on Rare-earth Magnets and Their Applications (August 18-22, 2002, Newark, Delaware, USA). The objective is to bring together scientists and engineers of industry, government, universities, and research institutes from different backgrounds to review their current understanding of rare earth magnets and their applications, and to exchange ideas and information. The Workshop will concentrate on the practical aspects of fabrication, processing, and application of rare earth magnets, as well as on the fundamental aspects of rare earth transition metal alloys and their magnetic hysteresis behavior.
