AbstractThe course is for advanced students and covers selected topics from magnetic resonance spectroscopy. This year, the
lecture will introduce and discuss relaxation theory and its applications in magnetic resonance.
ObjectiveThe aim of the course is to familiarize the students with the basic concepts of magnetic resonance relaxation theory in
liquids and solids. Starting from the mathematical description of spin dynamics, the effect of stochastic motional
processes on the density operator will be analyzed. In the end students should understand the Redfield formulation of
relaxation and be able to understand the effect of dynamics on magnetic resonance experiments.
