Chapters 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 contain extensive explanations and tabulations of the various types of space-group symbols. Chapter 4.3 contains for each crystal system extensive tables of the short, full and extended space-group symbols for various settings and cells. The explanatory text treats, system by system, the ‘additional symmetry elements’ of the space groups. In addition, many examples of those group–subgroup relations are presented which can be read directly from the extended space-group symbols.
