Title: Dale Sayers Festschrift

Abstract

This Festschrift is in honor of Dale Sayers who passed away in November 2004. Dale played a pivotal role in initiating the modern era of X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (XAFS) 35 years ago. The prehistory of XAFS before the modern era consisted of 40 years of confusion caused by Kronig's two different theories of the extended XAFS (EXAFS), the Short-Range Order (SRO) and Long-Range Order (LRO) theories. Dale's PhD thesis on EXAFS led to the idea of a Fourier transform to definitely prove that SRO is the correct theory and then to the development of XAFS as a structure determination technique.
