Symmetry considerations in structural phase transitions
Departamento Física de la Materia Condensada, Facultad de Ciencia y Tecnología, Universidad del País Vasco, Apto. 644, 48080 Bilbao, Spain
The most important symmetry arguments to be considered in the analysis of structural phase transitions are reviewed. A practical approach is used, with the discussion of many examples. In particular, we stress the straightforward application of computer tools freely available in internet to solve these symmetry-related problems. We focus on programs available on the Bilbao Crystallographic Server (www.cryst.ehu.es), but also the use of some programs from the ISOTROPY site (stokes.byu.edu/isotropy.html) is discussed.
