Es ist der Gegenstand dieser Abhandlung, die Art der Anordnung gleichartiger Theile in homogenen Structuren im Allgemeinen ohne Bezugnahme auf irgend eine Atomoder Krystalltheorie zu untersuchen und auf diese Weise ein rein geometrisches Fundament zu legen, das allen Theoretikern eine gemeinschaftliche Grundlage zu bieten im Stande ist. Man wird finden, dass die Resultate dieser Untersuchung feststellen, dass in jeder homogenen Structur von irgend welcher Art gleichartige Punkte ejne…

Dame Kathleen Lonsdale came to fame initially for her solution of the crystal structure of hexamethyl benzene, thus demonstrating that the benzene ring was flat, of considerable importance to organic chemistry, where it had been proposed before but without proof.

Abstract The English crystallographer William Barlow is famous for two achievements, both published in German, in Zeitschrift für Krystallographie und Mineralogie between 1894 and 1901. They concern

Chemical crystallography–science, technology or a black art

X-ray single crystal structure analysis has become a gold standard for the determination of molecular geometry. The reliability of the technique is a triumph for science and technology working

To cover the communication gap in knowledge offered by mathematical crystallography is one of the tasks of the IUCr Commission on Mathematical and Theoretical Crystallography (MaThCryst).

Heirs of the revolution: X-ray diffraction and the birth of the Mineralogical Society of America

Abstract The founding of the Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) in 1919 followed so closely on the heels of the discovery of X‑ray diffraction (XRD) in 1912 that one might hypothesize a causal

A tale of two garnets: The role of solid solution in the development toward a modern mineralogy

Abstract This article reviews the development of mineralogy as a science by focusing largely on the common silicate garnets of general formula {X3}[Y2](Si3)O12. It tells of important discoveries,

2 Differentiation: Geometric Diversity and Design Classification

The wide-ranging diversity of Islamic geometric patterns is a testimony to the degree of understanding that early Muslim pattern artists had of geometry and symmetry, and it is only through a more nuanced and differentiated approach to this study that a thorough understanding and appreciation of this design tradition can be achieved.

First Brillouin Polytope and Band Structure of Diamond Lattice in Four Dimensions

We study the diamond lattice in four dimensions — a descendant of the three-dimensional diamond lattice. As a four-dimensional polytope, we determine the first Brillouin zone and draw the band

Kinematics Meets Crystallography: The Concept of a Motion Space

In this paper, it is shown how rigid-body kinematics can be used to assist in determining the atomic structure of proteins and nucleic acids when using x-ray crystallography, which is a powerful

Crystal Morphology and Crystal Symmetry

Crystallography grew up empirically as a branch of mineralogy. It was supported by laws deduced from observations, such as the law of constancy of interfacial angles and the law of rational
