The Calculation of the Cosine Seminvariants

  • Herbert A. Hauptman


Generally speaking, the implementation of the several formulas for the cosine seminvariants cos φ, cos(φ1 + φ2), and, in the space group P212121, cos 2φ, as given in Chapter II, and their generalizations and analogues in the space groups of higher symmetry, presents few if any serious obstacles. However a few remarks may prove helpful.
