Abstract: The maximum entropy method (MEM) makes it easier to study the materials by simplifying experiments and making data processing more informative. MEM has been applied to determine the crystalline lattice parameters and the composition of the mixtures, to identify the close order type of amorphous conjugations, and to follow the details of matter transformations. As a result, new information on the materials investigated has been obtained.

Keywords: maximum entropy method; MEM; least-squares method; close order; isomorphic substitution; amorphous conjugations; crystalline lattice parameters; CLP; materials transformation; mixtures composition.
