And thanks for your detailed answers. I've now got everything I need to make forward progress.

Yes and no. I'm working with a student on a project with surface muons, with no E fields, but where stopped muon spin evolution is important. But I'm also working on a next generation g-2 experiment, with large quadrupole E fields that rotate spins, requiring a non-negligible correction to the final experimental results. And, I've just been asked to consider doing some spin tracking for a potential muon EDM experiment, with very large E fields. So, all these issues are very interesting to me.

I have been able to implement the missing terms in the G4EqEMFieldWithSpin class, and will send them to you and post them here once I've tested them. I also plan to implement the EDM field equations; although I doubt anyone else will have a use for them, I plan on offering the implementation for inclusion in the Geant4 distribution if you would be interested.
