Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Reflection of vector through the plane with normal vector .

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Rotation of vector through the angle about an axis perpendicular to vectors and . Note that the rotation is through twice the angle between and .

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Examples of one-, two-, and three-dimensional lattices and their lattice vectors. The lattice vectors are given by one-half the distance between neighboring sites (shaded), so that in the one-dimensional lattice we have .

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Examples of the six types of symmetry transformations relevant to the crystallographic groups.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

The two-dimensional Bravais lattices and the associated symmetry vectors for each of the five crystal systems. For the trigonal system we have included the nonstandard lattice.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

The three-dimensional Bravais lattices and their symmetry vectors. Although not shown in the figure, the symmetry vectors for the nonprincipal lattices are the same as in the principal lattices. For the trigonal/hexagonal system we have introduced two new lattices labeled and .

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

Examples of different types of glide reflections. In each case the reflection is generated by the vector and the translational component is along the dashed vector through one-half its length. (a) An axial -glide reflection, (b) a diagonal glide, and (c) a diamond glide.

Image of FIG. 8.
FIG. 8.

Figures exhibiting the different types of screw displacement symmetries found in the 3D space groups. This figure is based on Fig. 2 in Chapter 8 of Ref. 13.

Tables

Generic image for table
Table I.

The ten two-dimensional point groups and the crystal systems to which they belong. Both the international and geometric symbols are given for comparison.

Generic image for table
Table II.

The 32 three-dimensional point groups and the crystal systems to which they belong. Listed are both the international and geometric symbols for the groups.

Generic image for table
Table III.

Geometric point group symbols and their generators. The angles between the generating vectors are related to and as described in the text.

Generic image for table
Table IV.

The 17 two-dimensional space groups and their generators. Pure translation generators are omitted but can be obtained from Fig. 5. The 13 symmorphic space groups are listed in bold font.

Generic image for table
Table V.

The 230 three-dimensional space groups and their generators. Pure translation generators have been omitted but can be obtained from Fig. 6. Note that some space groups in the cubic system have the pure translation symmetry even for lattices. The 73 symmorphic space groups are listed in bold font.
