Abstract: Volume 32 of Group III is a supplement to volume III/19 and deals with the magnetic properties of metals, alloys and metallic compounds which contain at least one transition element. The present subvolume III/32D deals with the magnetic properties of rare earth elements (section 2.1), as well as with alloys and compounds of rare earth elements either with 4d or 5d elements (section 2.5) or with Be, Mg, Zn, Cd or Hg (section 2.7). Each section provides an introduction and a list of references, and allows an easy overview of the substances discussed in it either through a special survey (sections 2.1 and 2.5) or a sensible subdivision of the material according to groups of substances and surveys compiled for each group individually (chapter 2.7).
