GAMMA is a C++ library written for simulation of Magnetic Resonance
experiments. It's purpose is to provide a simple and intuitive
means with which users may construct simulation programs to suit
their individual needs.
GAMMA was written by
Dr. Scott A. Smith and Tilo Levante under the
Professor Beat H. Meier and
Professor R.R. Ernst at the ETH in Zürich.
It is described in the article
"Computer Simulations in Magnetic Resonance.
An Object Oriented Programming Approach",
S.A. Smith, T.O. Levante, B.H.
Meier, and R.R. Ernst,
J. Magn. Reson., 106a,

The platform is currently administered by Scott at the
National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) in
Tallahassee, Florida, USA. The sordid details
