This corrects an error and extends some analyses given in my paper [1] on branchings possible in Bravais lattices, involving deformations associated with thermal expansion.


Questo lavoro corregge un errore ed estende alcune considerazioni contenute in un mio lavoro [1] sulle ramificazioni possibili nei reticoli di Bravais, collegate alle deformazioni associate a dilatazioni termiche.
