Nanomagnetism may be defined as the branch of magnetism dealing with low-dimension systems and/or systems with small dimensions. Such systems may display behaviors different from those in the bulk, pertaining to magnetic ordering, magnetic domains, magnetization reversal etc. These notes are mainly devoted to these aspects, with an emphasis on magnetic domains and magnetization reversal.
