This text provides a collection of papers on B(3) theory and radiation-induced resonance spectroscopy. It gives a systematic account of B(3) theory as a non-Abelian gauge theory with O(3) invariance group, and provides the background theory for the development of NMR and ESR as a visible frequency spectroscopy with vastly enhanced resolution.
