After one cycle of refinement this line gets replaced by the correct adp macro. In TA all sites are forced to be positive definite ​by default. ​ If you'd rather let adps go negative then think about why (my preference --- //​[[john.evans@durham.ac.uk|John Evans]] 2009/08/27 17:44//) then try adding the macro below: + +  ​     macro adp_no_limits + { + move_to u11 min = Val - .05; max = Val + .05; + move_to u22 min = Val - .05; max = Val + .05; + move_to u33 min = Val - .05; max = Val + .05; + move_to u12 min = Val - .05; max = Val + .05; + move_to u13 min = Val - .05; max = Val + .05; + move_to u23 min = Val - .05; max = Val + .05; + }​ + + Be careful in e.g. multihistogram refinements. ​ Here you can't just use the @ symbol for uij parameter names or they'​ll be different for each histogram. ​ It's always sensible to double check that symmetry restrictions on sites are correct. ​ Try table 8.3.1.1 in International Tables or the table on P104 in Terry Willis'​ text "​Thermal vibrations in crystallography"​.
