X-ray diffraction patterns obtained experimentally for fibers, together with their chemical structures, can be analyzed theoretically in terms of an integral equation. The partially unknown electron density function can be solved by iteration. This mathematical technique has been applied with success to study the secondary structures of DNA fibers.
