The 14 3D Bravais lattices
This chapter constructs all the possible 3D translation sets compatible with the previously introduced 3D point groups, leading to the well-known fourteen Bravais lattices. For each crystal system, the compatible lattices (both primitive and centred) are defined, together with the corresponding holohedry (lattice symmetry). The more complex centred lattices, such as the R-centred trigonal lattice, receive particular attention. A reference is made to the different unit cell conventions (with a particular note about the monoclinic system), although this is too intricate a subject for such an introductory level textbook.
