Overview

Spin Dynamics: Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is a comprehensive and truly modern introduction, written to appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, and also active researchers in NMR, spectroscopy and quantum physics. The book focuses on those essential principles and concepts needed for a thorough understanding of the subject, rather than its practical aspects. The quantum theory of nuclear magnets is presented within a strong physical framework, supported by a large number of figures, helping to make the text accessible to a wide range of readers.

Spin Dynamics, Basics of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance assumes only a basic knowledge of complex numbers and matrices, and provides the reader with numerous worked examples and problems to encourage student understanding. With the explicit aim of carefully developing the subject from the beginning, the text starts with coverage of quarks and nucleons and carries through to a detailed explanation of several important NMR experiments, including NMR imaging, COSY and NOESY.

Written for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking a first course in NMR spectroscopy and for those needing an up-to-date account of the subject. This multi-disciplinary book will appeal to chemical, physical, material, life, medical, earth and environmental scientists. The detailed physical insights will also make the book of interest for experienced spectroscopists and NMR researchers.
