Abstract

Based on a simple disentangling technique of the propagator, a density operator formalism is developed to describe the behavior of a homonuclear two-spin system in rotating solids. It is shown that the coherence evolutions can be characterized in terms of quaternions or a rotation matrix in a three-dimensional space; the coherence transfers between two different spins can thus be analysed well.
