An algorithm for calculating the scattering factors of atomic fragments in molecules as defined by the Stockholder recipe is presented. This method allows the calculation, from ab initio molecular wave functions, of structure factors including individual anisotropic atomic temperature factors. These structure factors agree with the model used in most least-squares multipole-refinement procedures. Calculations on the H2O molecule illustrate the method.
