Sudden quench of the magnetic field causes oscil-lations of the magnetization of the magnetic system, in which the projection of the total spin moment of the system, parallel to the field, is not conserved. The magnitude and the frequency of such oscillations essentially depend in the nonlinear way on the value of the change of the field. Relaxation of the magnetic system in the Landau–Lifshitz form causes nonlinear dependences of the magnitude and the frequency of those oscillations on the relaxation parameter, and also the velocity of relaxation dependence on the parameters of the magnet energy and on the magnitude of the external magnetic field jump.
