1 See, however, later parts of this section.
2 Meaning that this cell has the smallest surface of all Buerger cells of the lattice.
3 The deviation of a cell is the number [|90^{\circ} - \alpha | + |90^{\circ} - \beta | + |90^{\circ} - \gamma |].
4 This cell need not be a Buerger cell.
5 For aP lattices, these parameters are derived from the Niggli point [see ([link]].
6 This range is a subset of [E_{k}], where [k \leq 6].
