Electron Density Fitting with Computer Graphics: A Review and a Glimpse

  • T. Alwyn Jones
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 126)


The organizing committee has asked me to review the use of computer graphics in electron density fitting. Meeting them half way I shall give a brief description of this and then describe some recent developments that I have made in Uppsala.
