In the following, all sums over hkl extend only over unique reflections with more than one observation!

* R<sub>sym</sub> and R<sub>merge</sub> - the formula for both is:
$+ R = \frac{\sum_{hkl} \sum_{j} \vert I_{hkl,j}-\langle I_{hkl}\rangle\vert}{\sum_{hkl} \sum_{j}I_{hkl,j}} +$

where $\langle I_{hkl}\rangle$ is the average of symmetry- (or Friedel-) related observations of a unique reflection. The formula is due to Arndt, U.W., Crowther, R.A. & Mallet, J.F.W. A computer-linked cathode ray tube microdensitometer for X-ray crystallography. J. Phys. E:Sci. Instr. 1, 510−516 (1968). Any unique reflection with n=2 or more observations enters the sums.

It can be shown that this formula results in higher R-factors when the redundancy is higher (Diederichs and Karplus <ref name="DiKa97">K. Diederichs and P.A. Karplus (1997). Improved R-factors for diffraction data analysis in macromolecular crystallography. Nature Struct. Biol. 4, 269-275 [http://strucbio.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/strucbio/files/nsb-1997.pdf]</ref>). In other words, low-redundancy datasets appear better than high-redundancy ones, which obviously violates the intention of having an indicator of data quality!

R<sub>mrgd-I</sub> (defined in Diederichs and Karplus <ref name="DiKa97"/>) only differs by a factor (FIXME: what is the factor? 0.5 or 1.4142 or ?) since it likewise takes the improvement in precision from multiplicity into account. R<sub>split</sub> , which is what the X-FEL community uses, is the same as R<sub>mrgd-I</sub> but that community seems not to be aware of this.

which gives us the average R-factor of two reflections measured d frames apart. As long as the plot is parallel to the x axis there is no radiation damage. As soon as the plot starts to rise, we see that there's a systematical error contribution due to radiation damage.
