International Tables for Crystallography
Volume E: Subperiodic groups
Edited by V. Kopský and D. B. Litvin
Volume E covers the seven frieze groups, the 75 rod groups and the 80 layer groups. The information tabulated for these groups is identical in format and content as that given for the 230 space groups in Volume A, with the inclusion in this new edition of Seitz notation for the symmetry operations. In addition, scanning tables are given for each of the 230 space groups. These scanning tables give the largest subgroup of the space group that leaves the given plane invariant. The use of the scanning tables is shown in determining the symmetry of domain walls.
The first edition of Volume E was reviewed by R. Gould (Crystallography News, No. 85, June 2003, p. 13).
