Reflection conditions for the plane groups

Type of reflectionsReflection conditionCentring type of plane cell; or glide line with glide vectorCoordinate system to which condition applies
hk None Primitive p All systems
[h + k = 2n] Centred c Rectangular
[h - k = 3n] Hexagonally centred h Hexagonal
h0 [h = 2n] Glide line g normal to b axis; glide vector [{1 \over 2}{\bf a}] [\left.\matrix{\noalign{\vskip 50pt}}\right\}\matrix{\hbox{Rectangular, }\hfill\cr\quad\hbox{Square}\hfill}]
0k [k = 2n] Glide line g normal to a axis; glide vector [{1 \over 2}{\bf b}]
For the use of the unconventional h cell see Table[link].
