NAME

       sasview - SasView Documentation

DESCRIPTION

       SasView is software for the analysis of Small-Angle Scattering (SAS) data.

       It  fits  analytic  functions  describing  different  types  of material microstructure to
       experimental data in order to determine the shape, size and degree of ordering.

       SasView also includes tools for  calculating  scattering  length  densities,  slit  sizes,
       resolution, fringe thicknesses/d-spacings, the (Porod) invariant ('total scattering'), and
       distance distribution functions.

SASVIEW USER DOCUMENTATION

       NOTE:
          In Windows use [Alt]-[Cursor left] to return to the previous page

   Menu Bar
       The menu bar at the top of the SasView window gives you access to additional  features  of
       the program:

   File
       The  File  option  allows you load data into SasView for analysis, or to save the work you
       have been doing.

       Data can be loaded one file at a time, or by selecting multiple files, or  by  loading  an
       entire folder of files (in which case SasView will attempt to make an intelligent guess as
       to what to load based on the file formats it recognises in the folder!).

       A SasView session can also be saved and reloaded as an ‘Analysis’ (an individual model fit
       or invariant calculation, etc), or as a ‘Project’ (everything you have done since starting
       your SasView session).

   Edit
       The Edit option allows you to:

       · undo/redo your recent changes;

       · copy and paste parameters between SasView analysis windows;

       · copy parameters from a SasView analysis window to the Clipboard as either  tab-delimited
         text (compatible with Microsoft Excel) or LaTex-wrapped text;

       · generate a summary ‘Report’ of the most recent analysis performed;

       · reset parameter values in the P(r) Inversion analysis page.

   View
       The View option allows you to:

       · show the Batch Fitting Results Panel if it has been closed;

       · show/hide the Data Explorer Panel;

       · show/hide the Toolbar of icons below the Menu Bar;

       · select  the  default  location  that  SasView  looks in for data to analyse (the SasView
         installation directory, the initial default, or a custom folder). NB:  any  change  only
         takes effect when SasView is restarted;

       · change  the  default  assignment  of  categories  (Shapes,  Shape-independent, Structure
         Factor) for fitting model functions.

   Tools
       The Tools option provides access to a comprehensive range  of  tools  and  utilities.  See
       tools for more information.

   Window
       The Window option allows you to select which SasView windows are visible.

   Analysis
       The Analysis option provides access to the key functionality of SasView:

       · Model Fitting;

       · P(r) Inversion;

       · Invariant Analysis;

       · Correlation Function Analysis (SasView 4.1 and later)

       See analysis for more information.

   Fitting
       The Fitting option allows you to:

       · create a new FitPage;

       · change optimiser (under Fit Options);

       · view  fit  parameter  correlations,  distributions,  and  convergence  traces (under Fit
         Results);

       · create/edit a Plugin Model.

       Additional functionality is available under this menu option during  particular  types  of
       model fitting, including:

       · setting up a Constrained or Simultaneous Fit;

       · combining a Batch Fit (an obscure capability);

       · setting up Chain Fitting.

   Help
       The Help option provides access to:

       · this help documentation;

       · a tutorial on using SasView (in pdf format);

       · information on how to acknowledge SasView in publications;

       · information about the version of SasView you are using;

       · the marketplace;

       · a check to see if there is a more recent version of SasView.
