Wilfried  Gille
The author is a physicist at the MartinLutherUniversity HalleWittenberg. In 1979 he was confronted with smallangle scattering experiments. It is a nonsatisfactory objective fact that this field (experiments and data evaluation) has been developed independently of the results achieved in the field of stochastic geometry. It was a part of author's life to see the connections between both these sides and try to transform and introduce known mathematical results into the scattering theory.

Geometric parameters of isotropic ensembles of right cylinders from SAS

The scattering intensity of ensembles of right homogeneous quasidiluted cylinders with const. oval right section (RS) and volume fraction c are analyzed using the SAS correlation function and the correlation funtion. A relation between the correlation function of the RS and the correlation function of the single cylinder of height H allows the calculation of the cylinder parameters.
Relation between the CLD of an infinitely long cylinder and its base

There exist connections between the chord length distribution (CLD) of a (threedimensional) cylinder and its (twodimensional) base. The corresponding integral transformation is derived from a pure mathematical point of view. The power series of the CLDs at the origin are discussed. The integral transform has been illustrated for the transition "triangle" to "triangular rod" and "rectangle" to "rectangular" rod.

For a spherical halfshell of diameter D, analytic expressions of the SAS correlation function, the chord length distribution and the scattering intensity are analyzed. The analytic terms are surprisingly simple. The size distribution (random variable D) of an ensemble of spherical halfshells can be detected from the scattering curve.

The distribution laws for two types of isotropic uniform random chords of the hemisphere, capchords and basicchords, are investigated. From both distribution densities, the chord length ditribution density of the whole hemisphere is derived. Eq. (15) is the final analytic result.
SAS curves of two parallel, infinitely long circular cylinders

Based on the SAS Correlation function (CF) of two parallel, infinitely long circular cylinders of diameter d, wholse zaxes are separated by a distance s, scattering intensities I(h,d,s) have been determined numerically. As I(h,d,s) is not band limited here, for the step from the CF to I(h) highly oscillating integrands result. The Mathematica function SequenceLimit has been used. Normalized Porod plots have been obtained. The parameters d and s can be traced back to the behavior of I(h).

A transformation method for establishing chord length distributions for infinitely long "rods" of various rightsections is presented. Here, the transformation on the twodimensional cross section of the object is used to define the chord length distribution of the threedimensional "rod". Examples are given. The step from the "twodimensional ellipse" to the corresponding "threedimensional elliptic cylinder" is described.

The set covariance of a DLm, constructed from hard spheres of constant diameter, is calculated analytically. A Mathematica program is given. There exist applications in the field of random sequential adsorption and the interpretation of smallangle scattering experiments.

Chord length distributions (CLDs) describe size, shape and spatial arrangement of geometric objects (particles). A CLD is inprinciple proportional to the second derivative of the SAS correlation function. In structure research, the characterization of numerous particle systems can be handled comparing experimental CLDs with theoretical ones. Both sides of this concept are explained.

The analytical expression of the correlation function of SmallAngle Scattering (SAS) of a quasidiluted ensemble of homogeneous spheres, the diameters of which are Rayleighdistributed, is given.
