1.9.3. Site-symmetry restrictions

| top | pdf |

Atoms (or molecules) situated on special positions of a space group exhibit (time–space averaged) probability distributions with a symmetry corresponding to the site symmetry. The p.d.f.'s describing these distributions contain the atomic displacement tensors. The displacement tensors enter into the structure-factor equation, which is the Fourier transform of the scattering density of the unit cell, via the atomic Debye–Waller factor, which is the Fourier transform of the atomic p.d.f. (see Chapter 1.2[link] of IT B). As discussed above, the tensor is fully symmetric with respect to the interchange of indices (inner symmetry). The site-symmetry restrictions (outer symmetry) of atomic displacement tensors of rank 2 are given in Chapter 8.3[link] of IT C (2004[link]), where the tabulation of the constraints on the tensor coefficients are quoted for every Wyckoff position in each space group. Here the constraints for atomic displacement tensors of ranks 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 for any crystallographic site symmetry are tabulated; some restrictions for tensors of rank 7 and 8 can be found in Kuhs (1984[link]). To use these tables, first the site symmetry has to be identified. The site symmetries are given in IT A (2005[link]) for the first equipoint of every Wyckoff position in each space group. The tabulated constraints may be introduced in least-squares refinements (some programs have the constraints of second-order displacement tensor components already imbedded). It should also be remembered that, due to arbitrary phase shifts in the structure-factor equation in a least-squares refinement of a noncentrosymmetric structure, for all odd-order tensors one coefficient corresponding to a nonzero entry for the corresponding acentric space group has to be kept fixed (in very much the same way as for positional parameters); e.g. the term b123 has to be kept fixed for one atom for all refinements in all space groups belonging to the point groups [\bar{4}3m] or 23, while all other terms bijk are allowed to vary freely for all atoms (Hazell & Willis, 1978[link]). Even if this is strictly true only for the Edgeworth-series expansion, it also holds in practice for the Gram–Charlier case (Kuhs, 1992[link]).

1.9.3.1. Calculation procedures

| top | pdf |

Levy (1956[link]) and Peterse & Palm (1966[link]) have given algorithms for determining the constraints on anisotropic displacement tensor coefficients, which are also applicable to higher-order tensors. The basic idea is that a tensor transformation according to the symmetry operation of the site symmetry under consideration (represented by the point-group generators) should leave the tensor unchanged. For symmetries higher than the identity 1, this only holds true if some of the tensor coefficients are either zero or interrelated. The constraints may be obtained explicitly from solving the homogeneous system of equations of tensor transformations (with one equation for each coefficient).

1.9.3.2. Key to tables

| top | pdf |

After identification of the site symmetry of the atomic site under consideration, the entry point (cross-reference) for the tabulation of the displacement tensors of a given rank (Tables 1.9.3.2[link]–1.9.3.6[link][link][link][link]) needs to be looked up in Table 1.9.3.1[link]. The line entry corresponding to the cross-reference number in Tables 1.9.3.2[link]–1.9.3.6[link][link][link][link] holds the information on the constraints imposed by the outer symmetry on the tensor coefficients. The order of assignment of independency of the coefficients is as for increasing indices of the coefficients (first 1, then 2, then 3, where 1, 2 and 3 refer to the three crystallographic axes), except for the unmixed coefficients, which have highest priority in every case; this order of priority is the same as the order in the tables reading from left to right. For better readability, each coefficent is assigned a letter (or 0 if the component is equal to zero by symmetry). Constraints thus read as algebraic relations between letter variables. Some more complicated constraint relations are quoted as footnotes to the tables.
