This chapter presents graphs for the translationengleiche subgroups of the space groups. In order to fit each graph in the available space, the graphs are ‘contracted’, i.e. each space-group type, specified by its short Hermann–Mauguin symbol and its space-group number, is displayed in a graph at most once. Each graph has a space group at the summit. The field of each space-group type is connected by downward lines to the fields of all space-group types to which its maximal subgroups belong. The chapter is partitioned into four sections: 11 graphs have a cubic summit (Section 2.4.1), 13 graphs have a tetragonal summit (Section 2.4.2), five graphs have a hexagonal summit (Section 2.4.3) and eight graphs have an orthorhombic summit (Section 2.4.4). All other possible graphs are contained within these graphs.
