Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new version of the direct-methods program SnB has been developed. This version incorporates the triplet sieve method for phasing centrosymmetric structures in a way that is transparent to users. The triplet sieve procedure may decrease significantly the time required to achieve a solution for such structures.
