By S.R. Hall, B McMahon

Foreign Tables for Crystallography quantity G, Definition and trade of crystallographic info, describes the traditional information alternate and archival dossier structure (the Crystallographic info dossier, or CIF) used all through crystallography. It offers in-depth info very important for small-molecule, inorganic and macromolecular crystallographers, mineralogists, chemists, fabrics scientists, solid-state physicists and others who desire to list or use the result of a single-crystal or powder diffraction scan. the amount additionally presents the targeted information ontology invaluable for programmers and database managers to layout interoperable machine purposes. The accompanying CD-ROM comprises the CIF dictionaries in machine-readable shape and a set of libraries and software courses.

Introduction (1) This document describes the full syntax of the Crystallographic Information File (CIF). 25 2. CONCEPTS AND SPECIFICATIONS (6) A data block begins with the reserved case-insensitive string followed immediately by the name of the data block, forming a data-block header. A save frame has a similar structure to a data block, but may not itself contain further save frames. A save frame begins with the reserved case-insensitive string save_ followed immediately by the name of the save frame, forming a save-frame header.

G. sentences, clauses, etc. For example might be given as a non-terminal symbol in some language discussing dogs. Productions may be used to infer rules for parsing the language. 2.
