### Re: [Ifeffit] Artemis fit error - chi-square and R-factors are always equal to 0

Hi Ava, Sorry for the trouble. It looks to me like the fit actually ran. Like, getting non-trivial and non-starting values and uncertainties for 'ss_Cu1', 'dr_Cu1', etc tells me that many parts of the fit and code worked. I'm not at all sure why Chi-square and R-factor would report 0. Do

Dear Scott, There are several papers dealing with effects of multielectron photoexcitations present in atomic absorption background (AAB) of K and L edge EXAFS spectra, which are responsible for the amplitude reduction factor S02. A quantitative analysis of shake-up, shake-off and other

### Re: [Ifeffit] Asymmetric error bars in IFeffit

Scott, It is a strange result. Suppose you fit a bulk metal foil and vary the 1nn coordination number. You will not get 12 +/- 1000. You will get about 12 +/- 0.3 depending on the data quality and the k range, and on the amplitude factor you fix constant. Then, suppose you take your formula

### Re: [Ifeffit] amplitude parameter S02 larger than 1

Hi Yanyun, Good. So here's the procedure for a Hamilton test. We're comparing the fit with S02 guessed to the one with S02 set to 0.90, because that was your a priori best guess at S02. I take the ratio of the first R-factor to the second. You didn't actually say the R-factor for the fit

eye on the Reduced Chi-square as you add more guess parameters. If it goes up, you may be overreaching on your model even though the R-factor goes down! HTH Carlo -- Carlo U. Segre -- Professor of Physics Associate Dean for Special Projects, Graduate College Illinois Institute of Technology

Bruce and Matt: When Athena and Artemis are completely moved to BlackBerry and iPhone, there will be a number of really nice options out there. For example, ringtones for a really bad fit should be made very unpleasant, and even more so, when Delta E0 is out of bounds, or r-factor is greater

### Re: [Ifeffit] LCF analysis

would indicate that C was present when it was not. That is *not* the same thing as saying there is a 77% chance of C being present. To see this, imagine very, very noisy data. Including C in the fit might very well improve the fit in the sense of an R-factor--maybe, in fact, there's a 45% chance

This is the central problem of EXAFS analysis, or indeed of any non-linear analysis. Artemis reports
