4.2.2. Additional symmetry elements and extended symbols

| top | pdf |

`Additional symmetry' elements are

  • (i) rotation points 2, 3 and 4, reproduced in the interior of the cell (cf. Table[link] and plane-group diagrams in Part 6[link] );

  • (ii) glide lines g which alternate with mirror lines m.

    In the extended plane-group symbols, only the additional glide lines g are listed: they are due either to c centring or to `inclined' integral translations, as shown in Table[link] .
