Symmetry Relationships between Crystal Structures: Applications of Crystallographic Group Theory in Crystal Chemistry

Ulrich Müller

Abstract

In crystal chemistry and crystal physics, the relations between the symmetry groups (space groups) of crystalline solids are of special importance. Part 1 of this book presents the necessary mathematical foundations and tools: the fundamentals of crystallography with special emphasis on symmetry, the theory of the crystallographic groups, and the formalisms of the needed crystallographic computations. Part 2 is devoted to the applications in crystal chemistry. With the aid of numerous examples it is shown how crystallographic group theory can be used to make evident relationships between cryst ...
