INDUCED FIELDS DUE TO A MAGNETIZED SPECIMEN
contents of SHEET#1
The contents of this paper are based on the sequence of contributions at the annual National Symposia in India during the previous 3-4 years including an International Biophysics Congress held in India in Sept.1999. It is intended to convey here a possible comparitive advantages & limitations, for various experimental NMR requirements, of the present method and the already known methods for the induced field calculations and hence the demagnetizing factors also.This contribution would put forward the results in a comprehensive perspective in which it has not been reported hither to.
This present method resulted when the calculartion of intermolecular contributionmto the shielding tensor values by a lattice-summing method effectively(1) accounted for the deviations of the experimentally measured tensor parameters and hence an intensive effort was made to arrive at a possibility for extending it to a summing over the entire extent of the macroscopic specimen.
(a) This method can be explained as the very simple magnetic-dipole equations and summing over the large number of contributions where as earlier methodsa required in some form or the other classical electrodynamic considerations and resulting complications of using difficult integrals to arrive at equations.
(b) Since it is only a summing over semi-micro volume elements along a radial vector of polar coordinates r,q & j and making a second summation over the different lengths and polar angles to possibly cover the entire material of the magnetized specimen, this does not require the classical equations from the electrodynamic considerations and the associated difficult integrals to evaluate.
(c) Because of this simplicity it becomes easily programmable method for computation and even arbitrary shapes can be included without complications arising in the already known methods.
(d) In the following presentation of results the demagnetization factors calculated by the present method are compared with the already reported table of values from the earlier methods to illustrate the efficacy & reliability of the method used as per the descriptions given here

INSTRUCTIONS TO VIEWERS:
A cursory reading of the sheet 20 even before proceeding from sheet 3 onwards could be helpful.
For necessary compactness in presenting the contents some of the sheets have the materials reduced to such smaller sizes as is not usual for reading. These materials in their "un-reduced" sizes are available with the presenter.

contents of SHEET#20
The considerations of possibilities of calculating demagnetization factors(1) by the methods similar to lattice summing provide a possibility to calculate these factors using even a simple pocket calculator(12) for the standard shapes of homogeneously magnetized specimens.This enables the calculation of induced magnetic fields inside the specimen at various points conveniently and also how these contributions at a given point differ depending on the polar and azimuthal angles(5,11) of the contributing elements from within the specimen.There are experimental situations(10,14,19) where inhomogeneities present in the sample are advantageously used(13,16) for assigning the NMR signal characteristics from different regions of the sample. It is also being pointed out that these induced field distributions expressed as field inhomogeneities(13,18) within the sample can be calculated more discretely by the above methods and can be adding to the methods available for optimizing contrasts in images if necessary with added susceptibility modifying reagents and these depend on the shapes of the samples and that of the regions considered within the sample. The demagnetization factors calculated for a few standard shapes are reported(17) for comparison with the standard tabulated values. An effort is made to depict the pointwise induced field values from the perspectives of image-representations to make it appreciable that such pictures can be visually indicative18 of the actual modifications required for a given situation to reduce the necessity for the enormous numerical tabulations(7,17,13) which would render even this simplified calculations relatively tedious.

After a poster presentation (on the calculations of intramolecular shielding tensor at aromatic proton in benzene molecule )at the joint ISMAR-CA '98 (Aug.1998 at TU Berlin), the induced field calculations are now being extended to calculating a tensor-form shielding contribution due to the ring current in benzene!
