BNS2OG: Transformation of a set of symmetry operations of a magnetic space group between the BNS and the OG settings

BNS2OG: Transformation between the BNS and OG settings.
Given a set of generators of a magnetic space group in an arbitrary basis in the BNS or OG setting, this program:

  • Identifies the group and gives the transformation matrices to the standard BNS and OG settings
  • Gives a set of symmetry operations in a "reasonable" basis for the description of the magnetic group in the other setting (OG or BNS). It tries to keep the description in the second setting as close as possible to the one given in the first setting.

    Choose the setting of the given generators
