We introduce a new mathematical tool for quantifying the symmetry contents of molecular structures: the Symmetry Operation Measures. In this approach, we measure the minimal distance between a given structure and the structure which is obtained after applying a selected symmetry operation on it. If the given operation is a true symmetry operation for the(More)
—A simple method for estimating parameters of the Doppler spectrum of atmospheric signals is described. The method is based on an adaptive filter processing that has been widely used in telecommunications but rarely applied in measurements using atmospheric radars. The method has been tested using both synthetic and real data obtained by the radar profiler—(More)
We provide analytical solutions of the Continuous Symmetry Measure (CSM) equation for several symmetry point-groups, and for the associated Continuous Chirality Measure (CCM), which are quantitative estimates of the degree of a symmetry-point group or chirality in a structure, respectively. We do it by solving analytically the problem of finding the minimal(More)
Distance functions serve for quantitative evaluation of the degree of similarity, shape content, symmetry, chirality, and so on. We have developed a general methodology and a general computational tool for the estimation of the value of the distance function and of the error in that estimation, which originates in the experimental uncertainty in the(More)
The web site, http://www.csm.huji.ac.il/, uses the Continuous Chirality Measure to evaluate quantitatively the degree of chirality of a molecule, a structure, a fragment. The value of this measure ranges from zero, the molecule is achiral, to higher values (the upper limit is 100); the higher the chirality value, the more chiral the molecule is. The measure(More)
