|Bilbao Crystallographic Server Supergroups Help
To specify the group for which you want to see the minimal supergroups, you should give its number in the International Tables for Crystallography, Vol.A or you can select it from the table with the space group numbers and symbols, which is accessible through the link ``choose''.
The list with the minimal supergroups is represented as a table which contains:
The table described above contains only the types of the minimal supergroups. If you are interested in all of the supergroups of a given type, then you should select the type of the supergroup, marking the corresponding checkbox and click on the button [Show].
If you click oh the button [Full Cosets] you can see the the coset decomposition of the supergroup with respect to the group.
NOTE, that the coset representatives are given with respect to the basis of the group.
For some group-supergroup pairs there is a parameter r,s, or/and t in the transformation matrix and in the translational part of the coset representatives. This parameter can have any value and each one of this values will give different supergroup of the same type.
The button [Full Cosets] is provided to access the full cosets in this decomposition. The page obtained using this button contains the correspondent transformation matrix and the elements of the supergroup, given with respect to the group and distributed into left cosets.
When all of the data is given, click on [Find the Supergroups] to obtain all of the different supergroups of the given type.
