Minerals are commonly identified by searching a file of standard X-ray powder diffraction patterns for a match with the pattern of the unknown. Such searching is generally done by hand, but the APL language, now available on most computers, allows direct expression and execution of these search procedures. Two features of APL make solution of the search problem particularly simple. The membership function, e , permits immediate comparison between an entire file of standards and the unknown… Expand
