  • How to
Type A heavy atom (Book XIX). Work on 6-Å 3D Fourier synthesis. Includes collaborators' work but much is by Kendrew himself, including summaries or reflections on methods and results. Index for each topic as follows:

"Relative y". Notes, diagrams, graphs, calculations, reflections by Kendrew on various structure factors, part related to suggestions by W.L. Bragg with whom correspondence is included. In his letter to Bragg of 21 July Kendrew writes: "Phase determination out to 6-Å is virtually complete ... I am very pleased with the way this has gone, and think there will be very few major ambiguities of phase indeed ... While I am away phase diagrams out to 2.8-Å will be drawn for hkO and Okl reflexions, just to see whether it is practical politics to extend the isomorphous replacement technique to 3-Å with our present methods." April-July 1957.

"Structure factors". Notes, calculations, tables and charts for various heavy atoms. Only one page dated March 1957.

"F values". Data, calculations, phase angles, Kendrew's queries for checking.

"Scaling". Calculations, radial distribution, correspondence from W.L. Bragg February 1957, summary by Kendrew of "Scaling investigations" April 1957.

N.B. Work continues in next book.
