In addition to the chemical rules described in the previous chapters, bond structures must also obey the rules of three-dimensional space. For crystals, the spatial restrictions are encoded in the symmetries of the 230 allowed space groups. This chapter briefly reviews space group theory (Sections 9.2–9.4), particularly emphasizing those features, such as special positions (Wyckoff positions), site symmetry and symmetry multiplicities, that constrain the bond network (Sections 9.5–9.6).

Keywords:   space groups, special positions, symmetry multiplicities, site symmetry, Wyckoff positions
