Restoration of Orientation Distribution Function Using Texture Components with Radial Normal Distributions

The methods for restoration of the orientation distribution function (ODF) from experimental pole figures have been compared for materials possessing a low symmetry of specimen (by example of the median section of the hot-pressed band from Mg–4.5% Nd magnesium alloy), namely, the method of texture components using radial normal distributions on SO(3) with different spreading and the method of superposition of a large number of normal distributions with equivalent small spreading. Both approaches have demonstrated similar ODFs. In this case, the former method, which is less sensitive to measurement errors of pole figures, is based on nonlinear optimization with a complex choice of initial approximations of the parameters of the model. The latter approach is more sensitive and easier to use.
