Monte Carlo; now getting a GUI!

There have been many developments on the Monte Carlo program that I have been rather silent about. For those that forgot: this is the method that allows the determination of a particle size distribution (or rather a scatterer size distribution) from a small-angle scattering pattern if you select a shape. It is described in detail […]

Free Code! McSAS: A Monte-Carlo way for retrieving particle size distributions.

Good news for those of you on the hunt for a way to get polydispersity (size distribution) information from your scattering patterns. Two pieces of good news, to be precise! Firstly, the paper that describes my implementation of the method that does exactly this has just been accepted earlier this month for publication in J. […]

Monte-Carlo fitting of isotropic scattering and observability on arXiv

We have now entered the final two weeks before the Scattering-Bonanza that is SAS2012… Are you feeling the pressure yet? With many good talks lined up for that conference, and many good people attending, I am honestly quite excited! I too will be giving my small contribution in the form of two talks, one at […]

Movie: Monte-carlo fitting of anisotropic scattering

I have worked on monte-carlo procedures for a while now. Initially (while working for Aarhus University), I managed to make these work to extract the particle size distribution from isotropic scattering patterns, and it works fine and quick. Now though, I managed to get this trial-and-error procedure to work for whole 2D pattens as well! […]

More details for the monte-carlo code

As promised, some more details which hopefully make the monte-carlo code (discussed here) more useful to you; the software documentation. softwaremanual_mcfit In the documentation are also some examples using the scattering pattern generators discussed before. Let me know if you canor cannot get it to work and post your findings here (or father, on the […]

Monte-Carlo Code

Hi all, Herewith a preliminary release of the Monte-Carlo code for fitting SAXS patterns. Documentation will follow, as will a movie and more. MCFit_sph.m Check it out and let me know if you have any questions.

Sorry for the delay

Hi all, Sorry for the big wait. It is not over yet, but I am working on it. More posts hopefully soon although I cannot promise a topic. Might be videos, but maybe also the monte-carlo code. The Monte-Carlo thing is almost ready to go, just some documentation left to write. It has become a […]
