Nature of problem:
Calculation of coordination shells and geometries around a central atom in a crystal structure and presentation in a form suitable for EXAFS data interpretation and refinement.

Solution method:
Based on the input of space group, unit cell parameters and fractional coordinates of nonequivalent atoms in the unit cell, we expand the cluster of atoms and calculate the distances from each symmetry- generated atom to the central atom, sort the distances into shells and attempt to identify shell geometries.

Per default, the unit cell is limited to twenty nonequivalent atoms. This parameter is easily changed at the cost of about 10 kB memory per additional atom.

Running time:
Few seconds on Intel iAP80486DX processors.
