Bilbao Crystallographic Server Retrieval Tools Help Generators/General positions

Generators and General Positions

This program permits the access to the generators and the general positions for a given space group. The space groups are specified by their number as given in the International Tables for Crystallography, Vol. A. You can give this number if you know it, or you can choose it from the table with the space group numbers and symbols if you click on the button [choose it].

To select between the generators or general positions as an output data just mark one of the corresponding checkboxes.

If you want to calculate the generators or the general positions in a different setting, click on [User-Defined Setting] and introduce the transformation matrix relating the standard/default setting of the chosen space group with the new setting defined by the user.

If you need the conventional data, just click on [Standard/Default Setting]].

The basis in which the result is shown can be changed also from the page containing the result.
