    Hi! I'm looking for a complete derivation of space groups as Schoenflies did over 100 years ago... Does anybody know where I can find this paper (in English or in German at least):
    A. Schoenflies Kristallsysteme und Kristallstruktur, Leipzig, 1891
    or maybe a book where the whole process of derivation (as Scnhoenflies did) is described. Thanks!

    I have on my shelf "J. J. Burckardt, "Die Bewegungsgruppen der Kristallographie" from 1948.
    Also in German but seems to be very a very clear derivation of the groups, also I haven't studied it in detail.

    Thank you, DrDu!
    Any books or articles in English? My German is worse than my English :rolleyes:
