Volume D will consist of three parts:
Part 1: Tensorial Aspects of Physical Properties: mathematical introduction and reduction of polar and axial tensors according to crystal symmetry, group theory and representations, mechanical properties including non-linear optical properties, transport properties, anisotropic displacement parameters, tensors for quasiperiodic systems;
Part 2: Symmetry Aspects of Excitations: phonons, electrons, Raman scattering;
Part 3: Symmetry Aspects of Structural Phase Transitions, Twinning and Domain Structures.
Relevant tables will be included on an accompanying diskette or CD ROM.
The preparation of Volume D is progressing steadily. The outline of Part 3 was reviewed during a meeting in Aachen (Germany) with the General Editor of International Tables and co-authors of several chapters. The overall plan of the whole volume is now finalized and authors have been found for all chapters. About half of the manuscripts have already been submitted.
