How to add ODE in a loop to getting a series of matrix

Asked by fang-chu

clc %parameters B1=10; gamma = 267.513*10^6; %rad/(s*T) Bzi = -5; %in HZ Bzj = 5; %in HZ a = 1000000; G = 42.576; %Gyromagnetic ratio (MHz/T) MHZ=1*10^6 B_zi = Bzi/(a*G); %in tesla B_zj = Bzj/(a*G); %in tesla mag_initial = [0 0 1; 0 0 1]; dt = 10;

%functions % equation magnetizaion = [m_x1 m_y1 m_z1; m_x2 m_y2 m_z2]; M = mean(mag); %average of mag m_x = M(1); m_y = M(2); euler = complex(cos(theta),sin(theta)); m = complex(m_x,m_y); B0 = euler*m; B_x = real(B0); B_y = imag(B0); B= [B_x+B1 B_y B_zi; B_x+B1 B_y B_zj];

%time evolution for n = 1:10 mag = 0; mag = mag + n; [t mag] = ode45('bloch', [0,dt/2,dt], [mag_initial, B]); end

I try to get a series of matrix- mag by having the output to be the input of the matrix at the next time step.

My odefun is function dmdt = bloch(gamma,mag,B) %outputs and inputs mag = reshape(mag,length(mag)/3,3); %length(array) finds the number of elements along the largest dimension of an array dmdt = gamma*cross(mag,B); return

Do you see, that omitting the code formatting makes your code unreadable? Do you think of improving this as explained in the "? Help" link?

Your code is very strange. I cannot understand its intention, but it does not seem to be a task for an ODE integrator. It is not clear, how the function bloch could obtain the 3rd input "B" or "gamma".

euler = complex(cos(theta),sin(theta)); fails due to a missing definition of "theta".

This looks confused:

mag = 0; 
mag = mag + n;

What about this instead:

mag = n

The initial values of an integration have to be a vector, not a matrix.

Summary: I cannot understand the intention of the code. It should throw a lot of error, when you try to run it. Without knowing what you want to achieve, suggesting an improvement is not possible.
