MVI allows the magnetization direction to vary within the model and thus take into account the combined effects of remanence, demagnetization, anisotropy and induced magnetization.
Where M is the induced magnetization of the particle, m is the mass of the particle, [chi] is the specific magnetic susceptibility, and H is the magnetic field intensity.
