_atom_site_rot_Fourier_param_modulus

Name:
'_atom_site_rot_Fourier_param_modulus'

Definition:

   The displacive distortion of a given rigid group is not
   completely described by _atom_site_displace_Fourier_. The rigid
   rotation of the group around a given axis passing through a fixed
   point (for example, the centre of mass of the group) is usually
   parameterized by Fourier series. Each term of the series
   commonly adopts two different representations: the sine-cosine
   form,
            Rc cos(2\p k r)+Rs sin(2\p k r),
   and the modulus-argument form,
            |R| cos(2\p k r+\y),
   where k is the wave vector of the term and r is the atomic
   average position. _atom_site_rot_Fourier_param_modulus is the
   modulus (|R|) in degrees of the complex amplitude corresponding
   to the Fourier term defined by
   _atom_site_rot_Fourier_atom_site_label,
   _atom_site_rot_Fourier_axis and
   _atom_site_rot_Fourier_wave_vector_seq_id.
