It was shown in Section[link] that, in the case of tensors of rank 3, the reduction is the same for axes of order 4, 6 or higher. The reduction will then be the same as for the tetragonal system. Group [\bar{6} = 3/m]

One combines the reductions for the groups corresponding to a threefold axis parallel to [Ox_{3}] and to a mirror perpendicular to [Ox_{3}]: [Scheme scheme28]

There are 2 independent components. Group [\bar{6}2m]

One combines the reductions for groups 6 and 2mm: [Scheme scheme29]

There is 1 independent component. Groups [6/m], [(A_{\infty}/M)C], [6/mm] and [(A_{\infty}/M) \infty (A_{2}/M)C]

All the components are equal to zero.
