Scattering of neutrons and xrays from molecules in solution ofiers alternative approaches to the studying of a wide range of macromolecular structures in their solution state without the need of crystallization. In this paper, we study one part of the problem of elucidating
threedimensional structure
from solution scattering data, determining the distribution of interatomic distances, P(r). This problem is known to be illconditioned; for a single observed difiraction pattern, there may be many consistent distance distribution functions. Due to the ill conditioning, there is a risk of overfltting the observed scattering data. We propose a new approach to avoiding this problem, accepting the validity of multiple alternative P(r) curves rather than seeking a single \best". We show that there are linear constraints that ensure that a computed P(r) is consistent with the experimental data. The constraints enforce smoothness in the P(r) curve, ensure that the P(r) curve is a probability distribution, and allow for experimental error. We use these constraints to precisely describe the space of all consistent P(r) curves as a polytope of histogram values or Fourier coecients. This description can then be used to sample the space of potential alternative P(r) curves. We use this description to develop a linear programming approach to sampling the space of consistent, realistic P(r) curves. In tests on both experimental and simulated scattering data, our approach eciently generates ensembles of such curves that display substantial diversity. In particular, we show that the ensemble of P(r) curves generated for a given protein includes members that are more difierent from a reference curve for that protein than are reference curves for proteins of other structural topologies. Thus subsequent reconstruction steps must properly account for this P(r) diversity in optimizing structural models.
