Precession Electron Diffraction has become an increasingly popular method of obtaining crystallographic data, and may well replace older methods such as selected area diffraction or microdiffraction. While a full model has to involve a dynamical calculation, some approximations give some indication how the results vary as a function of thickness and precession angle. This note reviews some of the basic models, their advantages and failures as well as some of the open issues.
