• IUCr
  • The resurgence in mathematical crystallography motivated the formation of the IUCr Commission on Mathematical Crystallography, as well as this virtual special issue of Acta Crystallographica Section A . This foreword describes some of the current activities of the Commission and introduces the articles in the special issue. (iucr.org)
  • Such considerations led to the formation of a MaThCryst `workgroup' in 2002, which the 20th IUCr Congress in Florence transformed into the Commission on Mathematical and Theoretical Crystallography in August 2005. (iucr.org)
  • The Erice School of crystallography (52nd course): first course on Quantum crystallography (June 2018) The XIX Sagamore Conference (July 2018) The CECAM meeting on Quantum crystallography (June 2017) The IUCr commission on Quantum crystallography The International Union of Crystallography Coppens, Philip (1997).

  • called the atomic
  • During the early twentieth century, the physics and chemistry community largely accepted Boyle's corpuscular theory of matter-by now called the atomic theory-and X-ray crystallography was used to determine the position of the atomic or molecular components within the unit cells (by the early twentieth century, unit cells were regarded as physically meaningful). (wikipedia.org)
  • fundamental
  • In particular, the lack of a solid education in fundamental crystallography among chemists, crystallographers, physicists and other participants prompted the Commission to develop itinerant schools, which are becoming a tradition. (iucr.org)
  • Toronto
  • The University of Toronto was also a hub of small molecule crystallography, with Stan Nyberg in the Chemistry Department and Norman Camerman in the Biochemistry Department. (iucr.org)
  • experimental
  • The book Modern Charge Density Analysis offers a survey of the research involving Quantum Crystallography and of the most adopted experimental or theoretical methodologies. (wikipedia.org)
  • atomic
  • X-ray crystallography is still the chief method for characterizing the atomic structure of new materials and in discerning materials that appear similar by other experiments. (wikipedia.org)
  • method
  • Within this one-day workshop we are aiming to create an up-to-date survey of the method of "Fragment Screening by Crystallography" as well as the presentation of results from its application in industry and academia. (iucr.org)
  • course
  • At the beginning of the year, Part II students are given a refresher course in X-ray crystallography, and then shown in detail how to use the equipment. (ccp14.ac.uk)
  • represents
  • Inspired by the etymology of the word "crystallography," such a work represents an act of lucid writing, which uses the language of geological science to misread the poetics of rhetorical language. (wikipedia.org)
  • work
  • Much of `mathematical crystallography' arose during the 19th century from the work of mathematicians, mineralogists, physicists and chemists. (iucr.org)
  • Volume
  • The MaThCryst workgroup had organized a school in Nancy that June, and from that event came a special issue on Mathematical Crystallography in Acta Crystallographica Section A in March 2006 (Volume 62, Part 2). (iucr.org)
  • potential
  • introduces this virtual issue with an article on Prospects for mathematical crystallography , where the potential of mathematical crystallography as an emerging field is examined from a sociological point of view, with a detailed and precise bibliographical analysis. (iucr.org)
