# dials.check_indexing_symmetry¶

## Introduction¶

This program can be used to analyse the correlation coefficients between reflections related by the symmetry operators belonging to the space group of the input experiment.json file. It can also check for misindexing of the diffraction pattern, possibly as a result of an incorrect beam centre.

Examples:

```
dials.check_indexing_symmetry experiment.json indexed.pickle \
grid=1 symop_threshold=0.7
dials.check_indexing_symmetry experiment.json indexed.pickle \
grid_l=3 symop_threshold=0.7
```

## Basic parameters¶

```
d_min = 0
d_max = 0
symop_threshold = 0
grid = 0
grid_h = 0
grid_k = 0
grid_l = 0
asu = False
normalise = False
normalise_bins = 0
reference = None
output {
log = dials.check_indexing_symmetry.log
debug_log = dials.check_indexing_symmetry.debug.log
}
```
