Bounds on texture coefficients
The orientation distribution function (ODF) is expanded in terms of generalized spherical harmonics and bounds on the resulting texture coefficients are derived. A necessary and sufficient condition for satisfaction of the normalization property of the ODF is also provided. These results are of significance in, for example, microstructural optimization of materials and predicting texture coefficients based on wave velocity measurements.
