Oriented symmetry operations of the hexagonal group [6/mmm ] and of its hexagonal and trigonal subgroups. The coordinate system [x, y, z] corresponds to the Cartesian crystallophysical coordinate system, the axes [{\sf x}, {\sf y}, {\sf z}] of the crystallographic coordinate system are parallel to the twofold rotation axes [2_x, 2_{x^\prime}] and to the sixfold rotation axis [6_z]. Correlation with other notations is given in Table[link].
