Multiresolution analysis of electron density maps

Project: Research

Project Details


Topological analysis of electron density maps of molecular structures is carried out at various resolution levels. Maps are constructed using calculated structure factors or wavelet-based smoothing procedures. Then follows a topological analysis approach in order to determine their critical point representation (local density maxima, saddle points, ...) which is easily manipulated for structural comparison.
