The goal of *crone* is to carry out most of the task and
calculations of structural crystallography using 1D crystal structure
models. The 1D models included with the package are taken from existing
linear chemical molecules. A full description of the theory behind 1D
crystallography and the *crone* package can be studied in this article.
The package is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students that need to
be trained in structural crystallography or in the development of
methods for structural crystallography.

You can install the released version of crone from CRAN with:

`install.packages("crone")`

And the development version from GitHub with:

```
# install.packages("devtools")
::install_github("jfoadi/crone") devtools
```

Structures are stored in named lists of type `sdata`

:

```
library(crone)
# Load carbon dioxide
<- load_structure("carbon_dioxide")
sdata
# sdata includes:
# cell length(a), space group (SG),atoms position (x0),
# atomic numbers (Z),B-factors (B), occupancies (occ)
sdata#> $a
#> [1] 6.066
#>
#> $SG
#> [1] "P-1"
#>
#> $x0
#> [1] 1.870 3.033
#>
#> $Z
#> [1] 8 6
#>
#> $B
#> [1] 10.000 13.333
#>
#> $occ
#> [1] 1.0 0.5
```

Once a structure is loaded (or created from scratch), the ideal electron density can be calculated and plotted:

```
<- structure_gauss(sdata=sdata,N=1000)
rtmp plot(rtmp$x,rtmp$rr,type="l",
xlab=expression(x),ylab=expression(rho))
```

The repeated motive in the unit cell can be plotted for several unit cells:

```
<- seq(-sdata$a*10,sdata$a*10,length=20000)
x <- structure_gauss(sdata=sdata,x=x)
rtmp plot(rtmp$x,rtmp$rr,type="l",
xlab=expression(x),ylab=expression(rho))
```

A diffraction pattern due to just one unit cell or to multiple unit
cells is created with function `diffraction`

:

```
# One unit cell
<- diffraction(sdata=sdata,D=1,Ncell=1)
dtmp plot(dtmp$xstar,dtmp$Imod,type="l",xlab=expression(s),
ylab=expression(I))
```

```
# 10 unit cells
<- diffraction(sdata=sdata,D=1,Ncell=10)
dtmp plot(dtmp$xstar,dtmp$Imod,type="l",xlab=expression(s),
ylab=expression(I))
```

Many more examples can be studied in the five tutorials included as package vignettes. The first three tutorials are set at an introductory/intermediate level; the last two tutorials are more difficult to digest.
