### Name

`'_refine_ls_R_Fsqd_factor'`
**Category:** refine

**Data type:** numb

**Enumeration range:** 0.0 -> infinity

### Definition

Residual factor R(Fsqd), calculated on the squared amplitudes
of the observed and calculated structure factors, for
significantly intense reflections (satisfying
_reflns_threshold_expression) and included in the refinement.
The reflections also satisfy the resolution limits established
by _refine_ls_d_res_high and _refine_ls_d_res_low.
sum | F(obs)^2^ - F(calc)^2^ |
R(Fsqd) = -------------------------------
sum F(obs)^2^
F(obs)^2^ = squares of the observed structure-factor amplitudes
F(calc)^2^ = squares of the calculated structure-factor
amplitudes
and the sum is taken over the specified reflections
