Seminar: "Advanced Crystal Structure Analysis"

The Seminars about Advanced Crystal Structure Analysis cover a broad range of crystallographic topics. The seminar series is an official course of the Georg-August-Universität which means the students and PhD students can claim credits for regular attendance.

These are my talks within this series.
