A new open source recursive magnetization evolution calculation algorithm is proposed for simulating arbitrary pulse sequences efficiently and intuitively. It lifts the sequence symmetry requirements of the Extended Phase Graph and avoids intensive computations associated with direct Bloch equation simulations. The method further allows for tracking the evolution of the MR signal and corresponding k-vectors in presence of time-variant gradients with arbitrary orientations in 3D domain.

To illustrate the developed technique, two simple examples are presented: spoiler design for the PRESS-based magnetic spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) and fast off-resonance calculation for dictionary building in Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF).
