High-order matter tensors in symmetrical systems

  • R. Fieschi
  • F. G. Fumi


The schemes of components of general fifth and sixth order tensors of polar and axial nature are derived for all the crystallographic groups by using the method of direct inspection for triclinic, monoclinic, rhombic, tetragonal and cubic groups, and elementary group theory for trigonal and hexagonal groups.


Si derivano gli schemi delle componenti dei tensori generali polari e assiali di quinto e sesto ordine per tutti i gruppi cristallografici applicando il metodo dell’ispezione diretta pei gruppi triclino, monoclino rombico, tetraedrico e cubico e con l’ausilio della teoria elementare dei gruppi per il trigonale e l’esagonale.
