    • Abstract


      The electron-ion interactions are evaluated exactly over the actual shape of the atomic polyhedron, instead of approximating it by a sphere, by making use of simple coordinate axes transformations and lattice symmetry in the case of f.c.c. and b.c.c. structures. It is shown that there are several alternative ways of expressing the interference factor,S(q) and the different expressions given by Sharan and others and Bross and Bohn are just two of these equivalent expressions. By comparing these expressions in the symmetry directions with those obtained under spherical approximation their apparent differences are discussed.
