VEC is a program package for Visual computing in Electron Crystallography. The program is written mainly in C++ and Fortran and is for running under MS Windows 95, 98, NT and 2000. Apart from its user-friendly interface, sophisticated text-sensitive online helps and tutorials, VEC includes same unique crystallographic methods. They are direct-method image-processing techniques, ab-initio solution of incommensurate crystal structures and algorithms for searching one-dimensionally modulated atoms in 4-dimensional Fourier maps. Examples are given in details.
Zeitschrift für Kristallographie – Crystalline Materials offers a place for researchers to present results of their crystallographic studies. The journal includes theoretical as well as experimental research. It publishes Original Papers, Letters and Review Articles in manifold areas of crystallography.
