Divergence of the Magnus expansion leads to paradoxes in the spin dynamics of solid-state NMR and in quantum informatics. This review presents results on quasi-equilibrium magnetization in a system of dipole--dipole (DD) coupled spins at times T2tT in multiple pulse spin locking (T2 is the transverse spin relaxation time, and T is the rotating-frame spin-lattice relaxation time). It is shown how the contradictions between the results obtained with the Magnus expansion and experimental data can be removed. Systems of two and three DD coupled spins in multi-pulse spin locking are considered and the entanglement evolution is investigated using both the Magnus expansion and the exact solution obtained. The critical temperature for an entangled state is also found.
