Introduction to Crystallographic Statistics

Hardcover | April 30, 1999

byUri Shmueli, George H. Weiss

not yet rated|write a review
Modern structural applications of crystallography make extensive use of statistical methods, in particular the probability density function (pdf) of the magnitude of the structure factor. Similarly, direct methods of phase determination have been responsible for much of the success ofcrystallography - methods based on properties of joint pdfs. This monograph, from two authorities in the field of structure factor statics, presents a survey of techniques and theories in this field of research in a self-contained and consistent way, with an emphasis on the probabilistic principlesinvolved.

Editorial Reviews

`The text is written in a uniform style where words and diagrams have been carefully chosen and are used sparingly to great effect. The ideas involved are clearly exposed without an excess of detail obscuring the underlying principles ... most valuable to read ... I thoroughly recommend itsstudy.'H.D. Flack, Laboratoire de Cristallograophie, Geneva, Switzerland, Acta Crystallographica
