Measuring Symmetry in Structural Chemistry Part 3 of \continuous Symmetry Measures". 1;2

Symmetry is treated as a continuous property and a Continuous Symmetry Measure (CSM) of structures is de ned. The CSM of a structure is de ned to be the minimummean squared distance required to move points of the original structure and change it to a symmetrical structure. This general de nition of a symmetrymeasure enables a comparison of the amount of… CONTINUE READING
