    Abstract

    The effects of a wrong scale factor on the phases computed by the anomalous-dispersion method and on the resulting electron-density map have been considered. The errors introduced in the phases are functions of la(H)-a*(H)I and the scale factor,a(H)and A(H) being the correct phase and the heavy atom phase. The electron density computed with these phases can be expressed as a sum of a number13; of component syntheses of which one is very similar to the correct electron density and another to the synthesis based on the heavy-atom phases. The remaining terms contribute mainly to the background. As a result the electron density computed with a wrong scale contains the structure on an enhanced background. The results have been verified in an example based on an actual case.
