Choosing the twofold axis parallel to [Ox_{3}] and applying the direct inspection method, one finds [Scheme scheme13]

There are 13 independent components. If the twofold axis is parallel to [Ox_{2}], one finds [Scheme scheme14] Group m

One obtains the matrix representing the operator m by multiplying by −1 the coefficients of the matrix representing a twofold axis. The result of the reduction will then be exactly complementary: the components of the tensor which include an odd number of 3's are now equal to zero. One writes the result as follows: [Scheme scheme15]

There are 14 independent components. If the mirror axis is normal to [Ox_{2}], one finds [Scheme scheme16] Group [2/m]

All the components are equal to zero.
