[Hans Christian Oersted, Danish physicist, 1777–1851]
A unit of magnetic field intensity. An oersted is the magnetism that exerts a force of one dyne on a unit magnetic pole. This term has largely been replaced by the SI unit amperes per meter.

Under the assumptions of the first Strang lemma (see Theorem 1.3, page 14, [14]), that is, the coercivity (41) and the continuity (42) condition are satisfied with constants [[alpha].sup.*] and A defined in (44) and (46), the problem (38) admits a unique numerical solution [u.sup.N] [member of] [T.sub.N], satisfying

However, due to the scarcity of RE magnetic metals such as Dy-dysprosium, Pr-praseodymium, and Sm-samarium, a more practical approach, which seems to be gaining more ground, is manipulation on the structure of grain boundary phases and internal interfaces, which enable better understanding of relevant coercivity mechanisms.
