**PURPOSE**- Computes the self-correlation function of an image/volume by using the Fourier transform relationship. Example.

**USAGE**- .OPERATION: AC NS

- .INPUT FILE: PIC001

[Enter the name of the image/volume to be self-correlated.].OUTPUT FILE: ACF001

[Enter name of the file which will contain the self-correlation coefficients.]

**NOTES**

- On completion of this operation, the output file will contain
the self-correlation function.

The origin is at (INT(NX/2) + 1, INT(NY/2) + 1, INT(NZ/2) + 1).

The SCF is not normalized. - The type of input data can be either real or Fourier.
- The self-correlation function is defined in "Correlation functions revisited", M. van Heel, M. Schatz, E. Orlova. Ultramicroscopy, 46, (1992) 307-316; as inverse Fourier transform of the square root of the modulus of the Fourier transform of the input image.
