In the past few years, there has been a rapidly growing interest in the properties of spin waves (or magnons) in ordered magnetic materials. These are the low-lying excitations that characterize the dynamical behavior of the magnetization variables in ferromagnets, ferrimagnets and antiferromagnets, particularly at low temperatures. Many of the recent developments concerning spin waves have been directed towards understanding their behavior in limited magnetic samples. At the same time, there have been dramatic advances in the experimental techniques, both for preparing high-quality magnetic samples in the form of thin films and superlattices and for the study of the spin-wave excitations themselves. Magnetic thin films have long been of technological as well as scientific interest and an understanding of both the linear and nonlinear aspects of their magnetic behavior is important.
