Maxwell's equations applied to low-dimensional magnetic structures result in a number of interesting features. For example, the magnetic fields generated by two-dimensional arrays of Heisenberg spins can stabilise long range magnetic order and determine critical temperatures. Aspects of this problem are discussed and considerations for the dynamic response of weakly coupled arrays of fine magnetic particles are presented. Finally a form of effective medium theory designed to overcome difficulties in treating magnetostatic interactions in magnetic nanostructures is described.
