For simplicity of coding, all Fourier transforms are performed in core using real-to-Hermitian and Hermitian-to-real fast Fourier transforms (FFTs). The data are expanded to space group P1 before calculating a map and averaged back to a reciprocal asymmetric unit after inverse transformation. Most of the map modifications preserve crystallographic symmetry, so restricted phases are not constrained except during phase combination.
