International Tables for Crystallography Volume A1, Symmetry relations between space groups, presents a systematic treatment of the maximal subgroups and minimal supergroups of the crystallographic plane groups and space groups. It is an extension of and a supplement to Volume A, Space-group symmetry, in which only basic data for sub- and supergroups are provided.

Group-subgroup relations, apart from their theoretical interest, are the basis of a number of important applications in crystallographic research:

Volume A1 consists of three parts:

The volume is a valuable addition to the library of scientists engaged in crystal-structure determination, crystal physics or crystal chemistry. It is essential for those interested in phase transitions, the systematic compilation of crystal structures, twinning phenomena and related fields of crystallographic research.

Volume A1 has been reviewed by R. Gould (Crystallography News, No. 92, March 2005, p. 28).
