The phenomenological description of the giant magnetoresistance effect as well as the discussion of the requirements which must be fulfilled in giant magnetoresistance thin film structures are given in the first part of our review. In the second part the magnetization reversal and giant magnetoresistance effect of antiferromagnetically coupled multilayers, spin valve and pseudo-spin valve thin film structures are explained. For these structures we also discuss the influence of the structure defects such as surface roughness and pinholes on the giant magnetoresistance effect.
