Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 1-2 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313033925 ] Reflections on the magnetic pair distribution functionW. RatcliffSynopsis: The recent application of the total scattering method to magnetic systems is discussed. The ability to determine the magnetic pair distribution function opens the door to the study of local order in magnetic systems ranging from multiferroics to dilute magnetic semiconductors.

Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 3-11 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313033081 ] Magnetic pair distribution function analysis of local magnetic correlationsB. Frandsen, X. Yang and S. J. L. BillingeSynopsis: An analytical expression for the magnetic pair distribution function is derived. Examples and discussion of its utility for investigating magnetic structure are provided.

Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 12-23 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313023887 ] Symmetry groups of single-wall nanotubesM. L. A. N. De Las Peñas, M. L. Loyola, A. M. Basilio and E. B. SantosoSynopsis: An approach to the determination of the symmetry groups of structural analogs of single-wall carbon nanotubes using ideas in color symmetry theory is described. The line group structures of the symmetry groups of BN, BC_{3}, BCN and BC_{2}N nanotubes are identified. An extension of the method to address nanotubes with non-hexagonal symmetry is also presented. Online 26 November 2013 |
Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 24-38 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313023176 ] Double antisymmetry and the rotation-reversal space groupsB. K. VanLeeuwen, V. Gopalan and D. B. LitvinSynopsis: It was found that there are 17 803 types of double antisymmetry space groups. This is four fewer than previously thought. When rotation-reversal symmetry and time-reversal symmetry are considered, this implies that there are 17 803 distinct types of symmetry that a crystal may exhibit. Online 17 December 2013 |
Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 39-48 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313026600 ] Experimental determination of core electron deformation in diamondN. Bindzus, T. Straasø, N. Wahlberg, J. Becker, L. Bjerg, N. Lock, A.-C. Dippel and B. B. IversenSynopsis: Based on benchmark synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction data, the subtleties in the electron density of diamond are explored. A contraction of the core density inherently linked to covalent bond formation is experimentally observed. Online 17 December 2013 |
Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 49-63 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313027605 ] Atomic order in the spinel structure - a group-theoretical analysisV. M. Talanov and V. B. ShirokovSynopsis: Group-theoretical methods of the Landau theory of phase transitions are used to investigate the structures of ordered spinels. All types of ordered spinels are established.

Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 64-71 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313030416 ] Darwin's approach to X-ray diffraction on lateral crystalline structuresV. I. Punegov, S. I. Kolosov and K. M. PavlovSynopsis: Darwin's dynamical theory of X-ray diffraction has been developed for lateral crystalline structures having rectangular cross section. This approach allows one to calculate rocking curves as well as reciprocal-space maps. Online 20 December 2013 |
Acta Cryst. (2014). A70, 72-91 [ doi:10.1107/S2053273313028313 ] Statistical analysis of multipole-model-derived structural parameters and charge-density properties from high-resolution X-ray diffraction experimentsR.
