Appendix B: Bond Orientational Order

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


To get an idea of the influence of non-ideal crystal structures on thebehavior of the bond correlation function \(g_{6}(r),\) an artificial crystal with 4, 020 particles is generated and different transformations are applied to the particle coordinates to simulate density gradients, domain forming and random particle motion. Then the bond correlation analysis is performed on the simulated data and the shape of \(g_{6}(r)\) is compared to bond correlation functions obtained in the experiments.
