Advanced Methods for the accurate determination of the electron density from single crystal X-ray diffraction

After the success of the workshop organized in Buffalo (NY) in 2003, a new school on accurate charge density determination and analysis is presented. The XD2006 program package has been recently released, including new features that summarize the main developments occurred in the field during the last few years. New students have started projects on charge density analysis and therefore a systematic and accurate training is necessary.The workshop is mainly intended for undergraduate, PhD or postdoctoral students as well as for senior researchers who want to approach the field. Theoretical lectures will be accompanied by hands on computing sessions, where students will learn how to perform a multipole refinement and the new methods to compute interactions between molecules in crystals or to analyze the electron density distribution.
