The spin dynamics of paramagnets with both isotropic dipolar and isotropic quadrupolar exchange terms in the spin-spin interaction Hamiltonian is investigated in the high-temperature limit. In particular, lowest-order integral equations for the dynamical two point correlation functions, which are measurable in magnetic resonance and ultrasonic magnetic resonance experiments are derived by the use of a previously developed diagrammatic technique. These equations are valid for all values of the dipolar to quadrupolar exchange energy ratio and for all values of the spin quantum number S. A systematic study of the numerical solutions to these equations is then made for 1≤S≤72 and for various combinations of dipolar and quadrupolar exchange energies. The results of these calculations for the case of S=72 are used in the following paper to help explain the observed nuclear acoustic resonance spectra in Ta181.
