The ability of the procedures described in Sections[link] and[link] to distinguish between space groups

The columns of the table show the number of sets of space groups that are indistinguishable by the chosen technique, according to the number of space groups in the set, e.g. for Laue-class discrimination, 85 space groups may be uniquely identified, whereas there are 8 sets containing 5 space groups indistinguishable by this technique. The tables in Section 1.6.4[link] contain 416 different settings of space groups generated from the 230 space-group types.

 No. of space groups in set that are indistinguishable by procedure used
No. of sets for Laue-class discrimination 85 78 43 0 8 1
No. of sets for point-group discrimination 390 13 0 0 0 0
