A procedure is described for determining the linearly independent coefficients of the generalized spherical harmonic expansion (GSHE) of the crystallite orientation distribution (COD) for idealized textures with Gaussian spread functions. An attempt was made to synthesize an experimentally determined COD from such functions. Coefficients with l even and l odd were then determined from the aggregate of such functions, and the resultant GSHE of the COD was calculated. The approach used is similar to that employed by Pospiech and his co-workers.
