The paper summarizes the computational techniques used in modelling crystal structures. Special attention is paid to energy minimization methodologies and more sophisticated simulated annealing techniques. Recent applications to the refinement of the structures of novel microporous catalysts and to the generation of the structures of the polymorphs of TiO2 are described. -Authors
