Please refer to picture (1). This the equation of motion for an electron in a magnetic field along the z direction and moving with a certain velocity. Where Ω is the Larmor's frequency.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Then refer to picture (2), that is the matrix representing the previous equation. How was this matrix arranged. I didn't understand a thing.

Any help is much appreciated.

Please excuse me for the bad resolution of the images.
