Abstract

This chapter forms a guide to the entries of the subperiodic group tables given for the seven crystallographic frieze‐group types (two‐dimensional groups with one‐dimensional translations) in Part 2; the 75 crystallographic rod‐group types (three‐dimensional groups with one‐dimensional translations) in Part 3; and the 80 crystallographic layer‐group types (three‐dimensional groups with two‐dimensional translations) in Part 4.
