Pringle-Schmidt Helices


This is the Pringle-Schmidt equation for fitting the helical form factor of an infinitely long helix formed by two helical tapes wrapped around each other at the angle $\phi$.

$$I(q) = \frac{\pi}{q L} \sum^{\inf}_{n = 0} \epsilon_{n} \cos^2 \left( \frac{n \phi}{2} \right) \frac{\sin^{2} \left( n \omega / 2 \right)}{\left( n \omega / 2 \right)^2} \left[ g_{n} \left( q, R, a \right) \right]^2$$


$$g_{n} \left( q, R, a \right) = 2 R^{-2} \left(1 - a^{2} \right) \times \int^{R}_{aR} r dr J_{n} \left[ q r \left( 1 - q^{2}_{n}) \right)^{1/2} \right]$$


$$q_{n} = \frac{2 \pi n}{P q} .$$
