The dynamic properties of simple magnetic chains, in which contiguous pairs of spins are exhange coupled, have been studied with a variety of techniques. These techniques include soliton theories in the presence of weak magnetic fields [1], perturbative studies of a generalized Langevin equation for intermediate and large fields [2, 3] and computer simulations [4]. Here we calculate, using a new mode-coupling theory, the response function measured in neutron scattering experiments [5] and computer simulations [4]. Special attention is given to the dynamics at the field induced cross-over from antiferromagnetic to ferromagnetic static correlations.
