1.2.10. Generators

| top | pdf |

The line Generators selected states the symmetry operations and their sequence selected to generate all symmetrically equivalent points of the General position from a point with coordinates [x,y,z]. The identity operation given by (1) is always selected as the first generator. The generating translations are listed next, t(1, 0) for frieze groups, t(0, 0, 1) for rod groups, and t(1, 0, 0) and t(0, 1, 0) for layer groups. For centred layer groups, there is the additional centring translation t(1/2, 1/2, 0). The additional generators are given as numbers (p) which refer to the corresponding coordinate triplets of the general position and the corresponding entries under Symmetry operations; for centred layer groups, the first block `For (0, 0, 0)+ set' must be used.
