Pressestimmen'George Backus's lecture notes, developed over many years, are well known among theoretical geophysicists as an authoritative source for the subject 's mathematical foundations. The lectures on geomagnetism have now been edited for publication. The result is no ordinary textbook ... This is essential reading for any mathematics graduate working in spherical geometry; it will remain authoritative for many years to come.' David Gubbins, Nature 'All in all, this book stands alone in terms of its mathematical rigor and completeness in treating exactly what it claims, the (mathematical) foundations of geomagnetism. I can highly recommend it to geophysicists as a reference work which will attain considerable longevity.' Andy Jackson, Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism
