Components of the Ri'(θ) equations

To simplify the calculations of the gradients and Hessians the Ri'(θ) equations have been broken down into a number of components. These include the dipolar and CSA constants as well as the dipolar and CSA spectral density terms for each of the three transformed relaxation data types { R1, R2, σNOE}. The segregation of these components simplifies the maths as many partial derivatives of the components are zero.

Dipolar constant

The dipolar constant is defined as

 d =     . (15.19)

This component of the relaxation equations is independent of the parameter of the spectral density function θj, the chemical exchange parameter ρex, and the CSA parameter Δσ. Therefore the partial and second partial derivatives with respect to these parameters is zero. Only the derivative with respect to the bond length r is non-zero being

 d'≡ = -     . (15.20)

The second derivative with respect to the bond length is

 d”≡ =     . (15.21)

CSA constant

The CSA constant is defined as

 c = . (15.22)

The partial derivative of this component with respect to all parameters but the CSA parameter Δσ is zero. This derivative is

 c'≡ = . (15.23)

The CSA constant second derivative with respect to Δσ is

 c”≡ = . (15.24)

Rex constant

The Rex constant is defined as

 Rex = ρex(2πωH)2. (15.25)

The partial derivative of this component with respect to all parameters but the chemical exchange parameter ρex is zero. This derivative is

 Rex'≡ = (2πωH)2. (15.26)

The Rex constant second derivative with respect to ρex is

 Rex”≡ = 0. (15.27)

For the dipolar component of the σNOE equation (7.3c) on page the spectral density terms are

 JdσNOE = 6J(ωH + ωX) - J(ωH - ωX). (15.39)
