**PURPOSE**- Compute the variance of a 3D reconstruction in Fourier space as a function of frequency.

**USAGE**- .OPERATION: VA F

- .FIRST TEMPLATE FOR 2-D IMAGE NAME: IMG***

[This is normally a set of projections of a 3D reconstruction, see notes.].FILE NUMBERS OR SELECTION DOC. FILE NAME: 1-700

[Enter projection file numbers or the name of the document file containing projection file numbers in the first column.].SECOND TEMPLATE FOR 2-D IMAGE NAME: DATA***

[This is a set of 2D images used to calculate 3D reconstruction for which the variance in Fourier space is to be evaluated.].MASK FILE: MAS999

[Enter the name of mask image for masking each image in the set.].RING WIDTH: 0.5

[Enter ring width of each frequency radius for the variance computation.].DOCUMENT FILE: DOC001

[Enter name of resulting document file.]

**NOTES**

- If you do not want to mask the images, you still have to create
a mask image with constant value 1 by using command 'MO'.
- The variance is calculated according to:
VA(I) = SUM[(P(kx,ky) - D(kx,ky))^2]/(N-1)

Sum over Fourier units in each ring of radius I - Reference:
