## Description¶

Time dependence of the polarization function for a static muon interacting with nuclear spin .

$A(t)=\frac13(2P_x+P_z)$

,where

$P_z(t) = \frac{1}{2J+1}\left\{1+\sum^J_{m=-J+1}[\cos^2(2\alpha_m)+\sin^2(2\alpha_m)\cos(\lambda^+_m-\lambda^-_m)t]\right\},$
$P_x(t) = \frac{1}{2J+1}\sum^J_{m=-J} \{ \cos^2\alpha_{m+1}\sin^2\alpha_m\cos(\lambda_{m+1}^+-\lambda_m^+)t +\cos^2\alpha_{m+1}\cos^2\alpha_m\cos(\lambda_{m+1}^+-\lambda_m^-)t +\sin^2\alpha_{m+1}\sin^2\alpha_m\cos(\lambda_{m+1}^--\lambda_m^+)t +\sin^2\alpha_{m+1}\cos^2\alpha_m\cos(\lambda_{m+1}^--\lambda_m^-)t\},$
$\lambda_m^\pm = \frac{1}{2}[\omega_Q(2m^2-2m+1)+\omega_D\pm W_m],$
$W_m = \{(\omega_D+\omega_Q)^2(2m-1)^2+\omega_D^2[J(J+1)-m(m-1)]\}^\frac{1}{2},$
$\tan(2\alpha_m)=\frac{\omega_D[J(J+1)-m(m-1)]^\frac{1}{2}}{(1-2m)(\omega_D+\omega_Q)},$

$$\omega_D$$ is the angular frequency due to dipolar coupling,

$$\omega_Q$$ is the angular frequency due to quadrupole interaction of the nuclear spin $$J$$ due to a field gradient exerted by the presence of the muon,

$$J$$ is the total angular momentum quantum number,

and $$m$$ is the z-component of the total orbital quantum number.
