Annotation Basic topics of spintronics such as spin valve, interface resistance due to the mismatch of conduction modes, spin potentials, non-local spin voltage, spin moment and its transport, Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation, and explanation on its basis why a magnet has an “easy axis”, nanomagnet dynamics by spin current, polarizers and analyzers of spin current, diffusion equation for ballistic transport and current in terms of non-equilibrium potentials are discussed in the frame of the “bottom-up” approach of modern nanoelectronics.
