## What is C2 space group?

The space group C2/c can be considered as a combination of a C-centred lattice with space group P2/c (or alternatively space group P21/n). This approach can be extended to the other 3 rotation axes of the primitive space group, yielding a total of 4 screw axes per unit cell in the C-centred space group.

## What is space group in group theory?

In mathematics, physics and chemistry, a space group is the symmetry group of a configuration in space, usually in three dimensions. In crystallography, space groups are also called the crystallographic or Fedorov groups, and represent a description of the symmetry of the crystal.

## What are the space groups in crystallography called?

In crystallography, space groups are also called the crystallographic or Fedorov groups, and represent a description of the symmetry of the crystal. A definitive source regarding 3-dimensional space groups is the International Tables for Crystallography (Hahn (2002)).

## What are the names of the space groups?

## How are space groups studied in other dimensions?

Space groups are also studied in dimensions other than 3 where they are sometimes called Bieberbach groups, and are discrete cocompact groups of isometries of an oriented Euclidean space . In crystallography, space groups are also called the crystallographic or Fedorov groups, and represent a description of the symmetry of the crystal.
