Symmetry in Lattices

Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 113)


In discussing the unit cells of five different kinds in plane lattices, it has been understood that more a unit cell is complex, greater is the number of parameters required to specify that cell. This complexity of the unit cells is determined by the “symmetry properties” of the array of points in the different types of plane and space lattices.
