This ebook provides the total concept of the irreducible representations of the crystallographic element teams and area teams. this is often vital within the quantum-mechanical research of a particle or quasi-particle in a molecule or crystalline strong as the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of a process belong to the irreducible representations of the crowd of symmetry operations of that procedure. the speculation is utilized to offer whole tables of those representations for

all the 32 aspect teams and 230 house teams, together with the double-valued representations. For the distance teams, the gang of the symmetry operations of the okay vector and its irreducible representations are given for the entire specific issues of symmetry, traces of symmetry and planes of symmetry in the

Brillouin area. functions ensue within the digital band constitution, phonon dispersion kin and choice ideas for particle-quasiparticle interactions in solids. the idea is prolonged to the corepresentations of the Shubnikov (black and white) element teams and house groups.
