PM space group and CM space

Post by jlwindy » Sun Jan 20, 2019 4:29 pm

hello everybody:

I am sorry to ask the simple qusetion that what's the difference between PM space group and CM space.My xred
xred 0.00 0.00 0.00
0.50 0.00 0.50
0.00 0.50 0.50
0.50 0.50 0.00
0.50 0.50 0.46
How to recompose it to CM space group?

Any help is appreciated,

Thank you very much

Dear jlwindy,
What do you mean by "CM" and "PM" space group, where do you see that?
Best wishes,
Eric

Dear ebousquet
l find it from space group chart.The message aslo appears in log.file and out.file.
Triclinic: 1, 2 (a, b, c, alpha, beta, gamma)
Monoclinic: 3-15 (a, b, c, 90, beta, 90)
Orthorhombic: 16-74 (a, b, c, 90, 90, 90)
Tetragonal: 75-142 (a, a, c, 90, 90, 90)
Trigonal: 143-145, 147, 149-154, 156-159, 162-165 (a, a, c, 90, 90, 120)
Rhombohedral: 146, 148, 155, 160-161, 166-167 (a, a, c, 90, 90, 120)
Hexagonal: 168-194 (a, a, c, 90, 90, 120)
Cubic: 195-230 (a, a, a, 90, 90, 90)
The PM space group's serial number is 6.The CM space group is 8.I want to understand the differences from them.

Thanks for your reply
Best wishes.

Dear jlwindy,
I still don't know where you find these "CM" and "PM", to be clear just copy and paste the lines from the output or log files where you have this information.
Regarding the space groups, giving the xred is not enough if you want help on that, you have to give the type of atom and the cell parameters too.
All the best,
Eric

Der jlwindy,
Regarding the different notation for symmetries and space groups, I advise you to read the first chapter of the "International Tables for Crystallography" Volume A to get into these notations.
Best wishes,
Eric
