Crystallography online: International School on the use and application of the Bilbao Crystallographic Server

Lekeitio, Spain, 21-27 June 2009

Supported by the:
  • Spanish National Committee for Crystallography
  • IUCr Commission on Teaching Crystallography
  • ECA Special Interest Group No. 5 "Mineral and Inorganic Crystallography"
The IUCr MaThCryst commission has organized a school on the use and application of the Bilbao Crystallographic Server, a full-featured series of tools and routines for the analysis of crystallographic, crystal-chemical and solid-state physical problems.

List of main topics

  • Symmetry databases for point and space groups
  • Applications of group-subgroup relations between space groups
  • Crystal structure transformations and alternative descriptions
  • Solid-state physics and chemistry applications of group theory
  • Selection rules in spectroscopy; phonon selection rules
  • Structural pseudosymmetry
  • Symmetry-mode analysis of ferroic structures
  • Domain-structure analysis
  • Structural phase transitions
  • Symmetry in ab-initio calculations
