Read Chapter 5 of this document:


It's the old feffit manual, but the definitions of chi-square and
R-factor are the same.

If I understand your question, then, yes.  On the data page in Artemis
there is a drop-down menu labeled "Fitting space".  One of the options
is "q".  In ifeffit-speak "q-space" means "Fourier filtered k-space".
We had to call it something.... ;-)

If I recall correctly, the back transform will be done over the
R-range and the fit will be done over the k-range of the original FT.
