NMR Interactions: An Overview

Abstract

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.
