International Tables for Crystallography

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The International Tables for Crystallography are a standard reference work for crystallography . They contain eight volumes of mathematical, physical and chemical tables, formulas and figures, including a complete representation of all 230 room groups .

A predecessor to the International Tables was Ralph Walter Graystone Wyckoff's book The Analytical Expression of the Results of the Theory of Space Groups , published in 1922.

The first two-volume edition of the work was published in 1935 by William Henry Bragg , Max von Laue and Carl Hermann under the title International Tables for the Determination of Crystal Structures. The second edition in four volumes appeared between 1952 and 1974 as International Tables for X-ray Crystallography . The current third edition ( ISBN 978-1-4020-4969-9 ), published by the International Union of Crystallography , appeared between 1983 (Vol. A) and 2005 (Vol. G). It comprises the following volumes:

  • Volume A: Space-group symmetry
  • Volume A1: Symmetry relations between space groups
  • Volume B: Reciprocal space
  • Volume C: Mathematical, physical and chemical tables
  • Volume D: Physical Properties of Crystals
  • Volume E: Subperiodic groups
  • Volume F: Crystallography of biological macromolecules
  • Volume G: Definition and exchange of crystallographic data
