Nature of problem:
Determining the crystal structure parameters of a material is a very important issue in crystallography. Knowing the crystal structure parameters helps the understanding of the physical behavior of material. For complex structures, particularly for materials which also contain local symmetry as well as global symmetry, obtaining crystal parameters can be very hard.
The tool extracts crystal parameters such as primitive vectors, basis vectors and identifies the space group from atomic coordinates of crystal structures.
Reasons for new version:
Additional features, resolved compatibility issues with the new development environments, performance optimizations, minor bug corrections.
Summary of revisions:
Assumptions are explained in . However, none of them can be considered as a restriction onto the complexity of the problem.
The tool was able to process input files with more than a million atoms in less than 20 seconds on a PC with an Athlon quad-core CPU at 3.2 GHz using the default parameter values.
