Description

International Tables for Crystallography is the definitive resource and reference work for crystallography and structural science.

Volume A1, an extension of and supplement to Volume A, presents a systematic treatment of the maximal subgroups and minimal supergroups of the crystallographic plane groups and space groups. The volume is divided into 3 parts:

Part 1: An introduction to the theory of space groups at various levels and with many examples.
Part 2: A complete listing of all maximal subgroups and minimal supergroups for each plane group and space group. Graphs that illustrate the group-subgroup relations are also presented.
Part 3: Lists the relations between the Wyckoff positions of every maximal subgroup of every space group, including the cell transformations and coordinate transformations.

New to the second edition of Volume A1:
A new chapter on building trees of group-subgroup relations for crystal structures that can be derived from a high-symmetry structure type (aristotype).
A new chapter on the Bilbao Crystallographic Server, describing the databases and computer programs that are related to the subjects of the volume.
A detailed discussion of the listed supergroup data and a description of a procedure for the complete derivation of the minimal supergroups from the listed (complete) data on maximal subgroups.

This volume is invaluable for the study of group-subgroup relations, and is therefore essential for those interested in phase transitions, the systematic compilation of crystal structures, twinning phenomena and related fields of crystallographic research.
