The general theory of nuclear magnetic resonance ͑NMR͒ imaging of large electromagnetically active systems is considered. We emphasize particularly noninvasive geophysical applications such as the imaging of subsurface water content. We derive a general formula for the NMR response voltage, valid for arbitrary transmitter and receiver loop geometry and(More)
Motivated by the recent application of the Earth-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique to the detection and mapping of subsurface groundwater (to depths of 100 m or so), and making use of a recently developed theory of the method, we consider in detail the resulting inverse problem, namely the inference of the subsurface water distribution from a(More)
We review a striking array of recent experiments and their theoretical interpretations on the superfluid transition in 4 He in the presence of a heat flux Q. We define and evaluate a new set of critical point exponents. The statics and dynamics of the superfluid-normal interface are discussed, with special attention to the role of gravity. If Q is in the(More)
The general theory of surface NMR imaging of large electromagnetically active systems is considered, motivated by geophysical applications. A general imaging equation is derived for the NMR voltage response, valid for arbitrary transmitter and receiver loop geometry and arbitrary conductivity structure of the sample. When the conductivity grows to the point(More)
The generic Hamiltonian describing the zero temperature transition between the insulating Bose glass phase and the superfluid phase lacks particle-hole symmetry, but a statistical version of this symmetry is believed to be restored at the critical point. We show that the renormalization group relevance of particle-hole asymmetry may be explored in a(More)
