Detailed Description

The PointGroup class is really a place holder for a CharacterTable.

It contains a string representation of the Schoenflies symbol of a point group, a frame of reference for the symmetry operation transformation matrices, and a point of origin. The origin is not respected by the symmetry operations, so if you want to use a point group with a nonzero origin, first translate all your coordinates to the origin and then set the origin to zero.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

    sc::PointGroup::PointGroup (const char *)

This constructor takes a string containing the Schoenflies symbol of the point group as its only argument.

sc::PointGroup::PointGroup (const char *, SymmetryOperation &)

Like the above, but this constructor also takes a frame of reference as an argument.

sc::PointGroup::PointGroup (const char *, SymmetryOperation &, const SCVector3 &)

Like the above, but this constructor also takes a point of origin as an argument.

sc::PointGroup::PointGroup (const Ref< KeyVal > &)

The PointGroup KeyVal constructor looks for three keywords: symmetry, symmetry_frame, and origin. symmetry is a string containing the Schoenflies symbol of the point group. origin is an array of doubles which gives the x, y, and z coordinates of the origin of the symmetry frame. symmetry_frame is a 3 by 3 array of arrays of doubles which specify the principal axes for the transformation matrices as a unitary rotation.

For example, a simple input which will use the default origin and symmetry_frame ((0,0,0) and the unit matrix, respectively), might look like this:

pointgrp<PointGroup>: ( symmetry = ’c2v’ )

By default, the principal rotation axis is taken to be the z axis. If you already have a set of coordinates which assume that the rotation axis is the x axis, then you’ll have to rotate your frame of reference with symmetry_frame:

pointgrp<PointGroup>: ( symmetry = ’c2v’ symmetry_frame = [ [ 0 0 1 ] [ 0 1 0 ] [ 1 0 0 ] ] )

Member Function Documentation

void sc::PointGroup::save_data_state (StateOut &) [virtual]

Save the base classes (with save_data_state) and the members in the same order that the StateIn CTOR initializes them. This must be implemented by the derived class if the class has data.

Reimplemented from sc::SavableState.
