For this model of the real crystal, the variable x is given by equation ([link], with [\ell] and g the refinable variables. Extinction factors are then calculated from equations ([link], ([link], and ([link]. For a reflection at a scattering angle of [2\theta] from a reasonably equiaxial crystal, the appropriate extinction factor is given by ([link] as E(2θ) = [E_{{L}}\cos\!{^2}\,2\theta +E_{{B}}\sin\!{^2}\,2\theta ].

It is a meaningful procedure to refine both primary and secondary extinction in this model. The reason for the high correlation between [\ell] and g that is found when other theories are applied, for example that of Becker & Coppens (1974[link]), lies in the structure of the quantity x. In the theory presented here, x is proportional to F2 for pure primary extinction and to [Q_\theta ^2] for pure secondary extinction.
