Short description:

The classes are devoted to practical applications of the material presented in the lectures.

Full description:

The classes deal with symmetry analyses of the crystal models, analyses of point groups and selected space groups. The problems concern also spherical and stereographic projection, point symmetry, the rules of coexistence of symmetry elements, complex symmetry elements, crystal systems and Bravais lattices. Students get also practical skills how to interpret of the information taken from International Tables for Crystallography.
