** Correlations between the Schoenflies and Hermann-Mauguin symbols **

Use italic type for the letters in symmetry operations and structural point groups. The symbols (Schoenflies) are as follows E, identity C, cyclic D, dihedral T, tetrahedral O, octahedral I, icosahedral S, rotation-reflection and a, mirror plane. Align subscripts and superscripts. [Pg.269]

At this point, you may find that the subject of symmetry in a crysted structure to be confusing. However, by studying the terminology carefully in Table 2-2, one can begin to sort out the various lattice structures and the symbols used to delineate them. All of the crystal systems can be described by use of either Schoenflies or Hermaim-Mauguin S5mbols, coupled with the use of the proper geometrical symbols. [Pg.53]

A rotoreflection is a coupled symmetry operation of a rotation and a reflection at a plane perpendicular to the axis. Rotoreflection axes are identical with inversion axes, but the multiplicities do not coincide if they are not divisible by 4 (Fig. 3.3). In the Hermann-Mauguin notation only inversion axes are used, and in the Schoenflies notation only rotoreflection axes are used, the symbol for the latter being SN. [Pg.15]

At this point, it is important to mention that, in spite of the great variety of active centers (molecules, ions in solids, color centers, etc.), it can be demonstrated that only 32 point symmetry groups exist in nature. These 32 point symmetry groups (denoted by the so-called Schoenflies symbols) are listed in Table 7.1. The group order and... [Pg.236]

Note 5 From a crystallographic point of view, the uniaxial nematic structure is characterised by the symbol Dooh in the Schoenflies notation (Wmm in the International System). [Pg.102]

Note 3 The smectic C structure corresponds to monoclinic symmetry characterised by the symbol C2h, in the Schoenflies notation and the space group t Hm in the International System. [Pg.107]

To make matters even more complicated, it is much more convenient in crystallography to use an entirely different system of symmetry symbols, termed the Herman-Maugin (as opposed to Schoenflies) notation (Table 8.2). [Pg.495]
