Main Question or Discussion Point

According to the literature, when monoclinic crystal structure transforms to triclinic, the following formulaes, regarding their lattice parameters are valid:

a(T) = 1/2 a(M) - 1/2 b(M)
b(T) = 1/2 a(M) + 1/2 b(M)
c(T) = c(M)

Where T and M stand for Triclinic and Monoclinic, respectively.

Could anyone please inform how do these formulaes come up or any literature source to search further?

Thanks a lot!

This looks like it might be a transformation from a face-centered monoclinic to a triclinic. One way to check would be to contruct the lattice on some 3D modeling software (like AutoCAD), and perform the transformations numerically.

What is your source for the relations?

The source is 'PRL 99, 247211 (2007)', 'Magnetoelastic Coupling and Symmetry Breaking
in the Frustrated Antiferromagnet -NaMnO2'. The formulas are presented on the last page, page 4, of this paper.

Any response is kindly welcome.
