We generate a complete basis of magnetic moment operators for the N c = 3 ground-state baryons in the 1/Nc expansion, and compute and tabulate all associated matrix elements. We then compare to previous results derived in the literature and predict additional relations among baryon magnetic moments holding to subleading order in 1/Nc and flavor SU(3) breaking. Finally, we predict all unknown diagonal and transition magnetic moments to ≤0.15μN accuracy, and suggest possible experimental measurements to improve the analysis even further.
