The interplay of spin-polarized electronic edge states with the dynamics of host nuclei in quantum Hall systems presents rich and non-trivial transport physics. Here, we develop a Landauer-Büttiker approach to understand various experimental features observed in integer quantum Hall set ups featuring quantum point contacts. Such approach entails a phenomenological description of spin resolved inter-edge scattering induced via hyperfine assisted electron-nuclear spin flip-flop processes along with a self consistent simulation framework between the nuclear spin dynamics and edge state electronic transport in order to gain insights into the nuclear polarization effects on electronic transport vice-versa. In particular, we show that the hysteresis noted experimentally in the conductance-voltage trace as well as in the resistively detected NMR lineshape results from a lack of quasi-equilibrium between electronic transport and nuclear polarization evolution. In addition, we present circuit models to further facilitate a clear understanding of the electronic transport processes occurring near the quantum point contact.
