Symmetry of Crystals and Molecules

Mark Ladd

Oxford University Press

The study of symmetry elements in two and three dimensions is followed by point groups, their derivation and recognition, including an interactive program for point group recognition. Euler’s theorem on the combination of rotations is discussed, and the physical properties of crystals and molecules in relation to their point groups explained. Chemical examples of crystallographic and non-crystallographic point groups illustrated by stereoscopic drawings. The discussion is extended to quasicrystals, and to fivefold symmetry in crystalline material.

Keywords:   symmetry elements, symmetry operations, point groups, crystals, molecules, stereoscopic drawings, quasicrystals
