PDF to ODF inversion

calcODF is one of the main function of the MTEX toolbox. It estimates an ODF from given Polefigure intensities by fitting an ODF that consists of a large number of unimodal ODFs to the data. It does so by minimizing a least squares functional. The command calcODF supports automatic ghost correction and the zero range method. The function calcODF has several options to control convergence, resolution, smoothing, etc. See below for a complete description.


odf = calcODF(pf)
odf = calcODF(pf,'halfwidth',5*degree)
odf = calcODF(pf,'zeroRange')
odf = calcODF(pf,'resolution',2.5*degree)


pf PoleFigure


odf reconstructed SO3Fun
alpha scaling factors, calculated during reconstruction


kernel the ansatz functions (default = de la Vallee Poussin)
halfwidth halfwidth of the ansatz functions (default = 2/3 * resolution)
resolution localization grid for the ansatz functions (default = 3/2 resolution(pf))
iterMax maximum number of iterations (default = 11)
iterMin minimum number of iterations (default = 5)
c0 initial guess (default = [1 1 1 1 ... 1])


zeroRange apply zero range method (default = )
noGhostCorrection omit ghost correction
ensure_descent stop iteration whenever no progress if observed
force_iter_max always go until ITER_MAX
silent no output
