    If we consider a large number of I=1 particles we can approximate this with a classical model. A large number of spins can be treated as a continuous distribution of magnetic moments, which can be described using a classical vector field. The magnitude and direction of the vector field represent the spin of the particles. The collective behavior of the I=1 particles can then be described using the effect of a quadrupole interaction that can then be described with classical vector fields.
