NMR Interactions: An Overview
Mathematical Biosciences Institute (MBI), The Ohio State University
(August 24, 2005 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM)
We will discuss the advantages of using irreducible representations of su(2) and so(3) in describing various interactions in NMR. We will show how these representations to analyze the NMR of half-integer quadrupolar nuclei. We will also make use of theserepresentations to develop the theory of pulse sequences, and analyze a few pulse sequences used in the NMR of biological samples. The talk will introduce all the concepts required, and will be accessible to a broad audience.
