This chapter provides an overview of the methods of structure solution of incommensurately modulated crystals and composite crystals. Assuming the periodic average structure is known, it is shown that modulation functions can often be determined by trial and error, employing structure refinements starting with randomly chosen but small values for the structural parameters. The presentation of systematic methods of structure determination includes Patterson function methods, direct methods, and the method of charge flipping.

Keywords:   average structure, charge flipping, direct methods, modulation, modulation function, Patterson function, trial and error
