   The overall standard uncertainty (estimated standard deviation)
   of the displacement parameters based on the crystallographic
   R value, expressed in a formalism known as the dispersion
   precision indicator (DPI).

   The overall standard uncertainty (sigma~B~) gives an idea
   of the uncertainty in the B values of averagely defined
   atoms (atoms with B values equal to the average B value).

   (sigma_B)^2  = 0.65 --------- (R_value)^2 (D_min)^2 C^(-2/3)

   N_a      = number of atoms
   N_o      = number of reflections included in refinement
   N_p      = number of refined parameters
   R_value  = conventional crystallographic R value
   D_min    = maximum resolution
   C        = completeness of data
