I have a question from which you should notice that I do not have much of a clue abot group theory. At least not yet.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question is about that many introductory articles about group theory seem to refer to the use of group theory with rotations of bodies and their related symmetry.

What I am curious about is whether it is possible to use group theory on bodies that are asymmetrical or where the symmetry is broken (this latter could be always the same as asymmetrical, I am not sure yet)?

Thanks in advance
