Space Groups for Solid State Scientists

This comprehensively revised - essentially rewritten - new edition of the 1990 edition (described as extremely useful by MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS and as understandable and comprehensive by Scitech) guides readers through the dense array of mathematical information in the International Tables Volume A. Thus, most scientists seeking to understand a crystal structure publication can do this from this book without necessarily having to consult the International Tables themselves. This remains the only book aimed at non-crystallographers devoted to teaching them about crystallographic space groups.
