### Definition

The value of Rmerge(I) for significantly intense reflections
(see _reflns_threshold_expression) in a given shell.
sum~i~ ( sum~j~ | I~j~ - | )
Rmerge(I) = --------------------------------
sum~i~ ( sum~j~ )
I~j~ = the intensity of the jth observation of reflection i
= the mean of the intensities of all observations of
reflection i
sum~i~ is taken over all reflections
sum~j~ is taken over all observations of each reflection.
