About the Authors
  • Michael Woolfson and Fan Hai-fu describe all the available methods of solving crystal structure and how they are used. In addition to traditional means such as the use of the Patterson function and isomorphous replacement, and the direct methods, the authors include techniques that use anomalous scattering and observations from multiple-beam scattering. The fundamental physics and mathematical analyses are fully explained. Practical aspects of applying the methods are also emphasized.

    • Comprehensive coverage of all methods used in crystallography
    • Underlying principles are clearly explained throughout

    "Complete in its descriptions of the many methods available for solving crystal structtores, this book is a well-written and useful resource for crystallographers not familiar with the theoretical basis of these diverse methods and for those who seek some introduction....Upper-division graduate through professional." M. Rossi, Choice
