Abstract : This series of lectures covers the following five topics in the theory of magnetic metals. (1) Generalization of the Landau quasi-particle theory to include dynamical interactions and large changes of state. (2) Penn's theory of the stability of magnetic phases for a simple model of the transition metals is reviewed. (3) Antiferromagnetic in simple metals is discussed. (4) The distribution of magnetism and superconductivity in the periodic table is treated qualitatively. (5) The electronic configuration of the alkali metals is discussed in relation to their optical properties, phase diagrams and the possibility of magnetism. (Author)
