ODF stands for orientation distribution functions. This section explains how to import and export ODFs, how to define model ODFs and how to analyze ODFs, e.g., with respect to modalorientations, textureindex, volumeportions. Pole figure simulation and single orientation simulation is explained as well.

The SantaFe exampleSimulate a set of pole figures for the SantaFe standard ODF, estimate an ODF and compare it to the inital SantaFe ODF.
Model ODFsDescribes how to define model ODFs in MTEX, i.e., uniform ODFs, unimodal ODFs, fibre ODFs, Bingham ODFs and ODFs defined by its Fourier coefficients.
Importing and Exporting ODF DataExplains how to read and write ODFs to a data file
Simulating Pole Figure dataSimulate arbitrary pole figure data
Simulating EBSD dataHow to simulate an arbitrary number of individual orientations data from any ODF.
Characterizing ODFsExplains how to analyze ODFs, i.e. how to compute modal orientations, texture index, volume portions, Fourier coefficients and pole figures.
Visualizing ODFsExplains all possibilities to visualize ODfs, i.e. pole figure plots, inverse pole figure plots, ODF sections, fibre sections.
Detecting sample symmetryExplains how to detect orthotropic symmetry in an ODF.
Misorientation Distribution FunctionExplains how to compute and analyze misorientation distribution functions.
