Abstract:The Maximum-Entropy method is applied to the determination of the distance distribution function in small-angle scattering. Alternative methods for this purpose suffer from problems caused by their ad hoc nature, but the Maximum-Entropy method has a well established theoretical foundation offering several advantages. Examples are given using simulated as well as experimental data. It is demonstrated that the "best" (most likely) choice of parameters as e.g. the noise level, the model or the regularisation method in general can be found from the evidence in a Bayesian framework.
