Re: [ccp4bb] difference between polar angle and eulerian angle

The polar angles ϕ, ω define the direction of an axis about which a rotation by angle κ occurs, i.e. a single rotation around a defined axis. This is different from Eulerian angles which define 3 successive rotations around principal axes On 27 Mar 2014, at 06:11, Qixu Cai

If you assigns them to different datasets in Pointless, then Aimless will give you the cross-dataset correlations. By default it will scale them to together first, but you can skip that if you want It might not scale well to a large number of files (OK up to about 10 I guess) Phil On 14 Mar

Dear Jens I'm surprised by this as Scala hasn't changed for quite a long time, as it is now now superseded by Aimless. However, I haven't implemented a reference dataset in Aimless since in the end I decided that it wasn't very useful, so if you find it useful then you will indeed need to use

As a novice looking at mmCIF from a developers point of view, for reflection data, the complication is not so much tokenising (parsing), but what items to write or to expect to read. For example as far as I can see an observed intensity may be encoded in a reflection loop (merged or unmerged)
