We have built and generalized a rigorous formalism of the Extended Phase Diagram algorithm, in order to coherently include within a computational framework also non-trivial dephasing effects arising from static magnetic field inhomogeneities. Computational applications are presented providing both analytical and numerical outputs, including programs evolving the state populations according to virtually any pulse sequence provided by the user.
