Symmetry of Crystals and Molecules

Mark Ladd


This book provides a comprehensive study of the symmetry and geometry of crystals and molecules, starting from first principles. The pre-knowledge assumed is mathematics and physical science to about A-level; additional mathematical topics are discussed in appendices. It is illustrated, including many stereoviews, with instructions both for stereoviewing and for constructing a stereoviewer. Problems for each chapter are provided, with fully worked solutions. A suite of associated computer programs has been devised and placed online, for assisting both the study of the text and the solutions of ... More

Keywords: symmetry, crystals, molecules, point groups, space groups, group theory
