By Andrzej Szczepański

Crystallographic teams are teams which act in a pleasant means and through isometries on a few n-dimensional Euclidean area. They bought their identify, simply because in 3 dimensions they take place because the symmetry teams of a crystal (which we think to increase to infinity in all directions). The booklet is split into components. within the first half, the fundamental concept of crystallographic teams is built from the very starting, whereas within the moment half, extra complicated and more moderen issues are mentioned. So the 1st a part of the publication will be usable as a textbook, whereas the second one half is extra attention-grabbing to researchers within the box. There are brief introductions to the subject earlier than each bankruptcy. on the finish of this publication is a listing of conjectures and open difficulties. additionally there are 3 appendices. The final one offers an instance of the torsion loose crystallographic staff with a trivial heart and a trivial outer automorphism group.

This quantity omits subject matters approximately generalization of crystallographic teams to nilpotent or solvable global and classical crystallography.

we wish to emphasize that almost all theorems and evidence offered within the moment half are from the final 20 years. this is often after the ebook of L Charlap “Bieberbach teams and flat manifolds” was once published.
