Rapid search function.
Small memory footprint as the Wyckoff positions and symmetry operations are computed—very quickly—as needed, and not stored on the device.
Copious information above is generated using elementary group theory from a few group generators, with the aid of a …
Custom symbolic manipulation engine.
All technical output is typeset and displayed—again, very quickly—in Times Roman and Italic fonts using a …
Custom typesetting engine.
On-demand natural language descriptions of the symmetry operations.
On-demand spoken descriptions of the symmetry operations.
