International Tables for Crystallography
|Tensors in quasiperiodic structures
International Tables for Crystallography (2006). Vol. D, ch. 1.10, pp. 243-264 [ doi:10.1107/97809553602060000637 ]
This chapter is devoted to the symmetry-related physical properties of quasiperiodic crystals. In the first part the symmetry properties are described: point groups, superspace groups and the action of symmetry groups. The second part concerns the properties of tensors in higher-dimensional spaces, with emphasis on the particular cases of the piezoelectric, elastic and electric field gradient tensors. The last section gives tables of characters of some point groups for quasicrystals and of the matrices of the corresponding irreducible representations.
