GROUP THEORY SYMBOL

GTSGOrderOfElement

GTSGOrderOfElement[element, basis]
gives the order of a space group element.

DetailsDetails

  • The order of a group element is defined by the smallest number with , where is the identity element of the group. In finite groups the order of a group element is also finite.
  • GTSGOrderOfElement is an extension of GTOrderOfElement for space group elements.
