Book Description

August 22, 2005 0521018110 978-0521018111
This book provides an introduction to the general principles of nuclear magnetic resonance and relaxation, concentrating on simple models and their application. It includes an introduction to the ideas and applications of nuclear magnetic resonance and emphasizes the concepts of relaxation and the time domain. Some relatively advanced topics are treated, but the approach is graduated and all points of potential difficulty are carefully explained. An introductory classical discussion of relaxation is followed by a quantum-mechanical treatment. A selection of case studies is considered in depth, providing applications of the ideas developed in the text. There are a number of appendixes, including one on random functions. This treatment of one of the most important experimental techniques in modern science will be of great value to final-year undergraduates, graduate students and researchers using nuclear magnetic resonance, particularly physicists, and especially those involved in the study of condensed matter physics.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"The author uses simple models to explain each topic and does a commendable job of clearly and completely covering the topics. Although written primarily for physicists, chemists who are dealing with the theory of NMR may also find this a useful resource." Choice

"This book is a good read....very suitable for its target audience, final year and graduate physicists, for whom it is recommended." Andrew Todd-Pokropek, The Times Higher Education Supplement

5.0 out of 5 stars Like bells in my head August 6, 2003
Format:Hardcover
Let's not mince words here: this book is sublime. The tender words of Brian lifted me from my toes, and made me want to go outside for the first time. I could imagine him sitting, wearing sandals, writing this book just for me. I wear sandals now. I have grown a beard too.
His T1 and T2 times: they are my clothes and they support me, I am relaxed. Phase encoding, frequency encoding - they tell me where I am and where to be. Fourier transforms move me between domains of light and dark.
The perfection of this book almost moved me to change, and in a good way, not like last time. I stopped though. The last section is too short and makes me want more. I tried to tell the girl from next door, but she can't read yet. I tried to teach her but I did it too hard and now she won't breathe. Was this wrong? Tell me Brian.
