Two ways of constructing a ferroelastic domain twin. (a) Formation of ferroelastic single-domain states [{\bf R}_1, {\bf R}_2] from the parent phase state [{\bf R}_0] and then rotating away these single-domain states through an angle [\pm\textstyle{1\over 2}\omega] about the domain-pair axis H so that disoriented ferroelastic domain states [{\bf R}_1^+] and [{\bf R}_2^-] meet along one of two perpendicular planes of equal deformation p or [p^\prime]. (b) Formation of a ferroelastic twin from one ferroelastic domain state [{\bf R}_1^+] by a simple shear deformation with a shear angle (obliquity) [\omega]. For more details see the text.
