W. H. Zachariasens well-known 1945 book Theory of X-Ray Diffraction in Crystals contains many significant and original ideas pertaining to diffraction theory. However, the discussions and mathematical derivations therein lack the necessary detail which could make the test useful to readers of diverse mathematical background. The purpose of these notes is to provide additional comments and intermediate derivational steps for Chapter III of this book, Theory of X-Ray Diffraction in Ideal Crystals, whose content has often been referenced in the published literature.
