Symmetry Relationships between Crystal Structures : Applications of Crystallographic Group Theory in Crystal Chemistry, Hardback Book

Symmetry Relationships between Crystal Structures : Applications of Crystallographic Group Theory in Crystal Chemistry Hardback

Part of the International Union of Crystallography Texts on Crystallography series

Description

In crystal chemistry and crystal physics, the relations between the symmetry groups (space groups) of crystalline solids are of special importance.

Part 1 of this book presents the necessary mathematical foundations and tools: the fundamentals of crystallography with special emphasis on symmetry, the theory of the crystallographic groups, and the formalisms of the needed crystallographic computations.

Part 2 gives an insight into applications to problems in crystalchemistry.

With the aid of numerous examples, it is shown how crystallographic group theory can be used to make evident relationships between crystal structures, to set up a systematic order in the huge amount of known crystal structures, to predict crystal structures, to analyse phase transitions andtopotactic reactions in the solid state, to understand the formation of domains and twins in crystals, and to avoid errors in crystal structure determinations. A broad range of end-of-chapter exercises offers the possibility to apply the learned material.

Worked-out solutions to the exercises can be found at the end of the book.
