Well, what we do to produce the 4-D resolution ellipsoid is to define an
inelastic scattering sample where S(Q,w) is a constant for all Q and
omega within a predefined 4-D volume. The detector then records the
initial and final k vector for every neutron that reach the detector,
together with the neutron weight p for that event. The expected value of
p (in the statistical sense) is then just the value of the resolution
function at the (Q,w) computed from the ki and kf. You can then either
do a 4D histogram of (qx,qy,qz,w), or (as we do) just store all the
events in a file for later processing and visualization.

Yes (we use both Matlab and PDL).
