Geometry of proteins and NMR

Abstract

The mathematical tools used in protein structure determination from Nuclear Magnetic resonance data are distance geometry and discrete differential geometry, dealing with distance and orientational constraints respectively. We give an introduction to these methods and their use in finding structures of proteins from NMR experiments in solid-state.
