Critical Analysis of Non-Nuclear Electron-Density Maxima and the Maximum Entropy Method.


Experimental evidence for the existence of non-nuclear maxima in charge densities is questioned. It is shown that the non-nuclear maxima reported for silicon are artifacts of the maximum entropy method that was used to analyze the x-ray diffraction data. This method can be improved by the use of appropriate prior information. We report systematic tests of… (More)
