Space Groups Irreducible Representations

Space Groups and Representations.
This program calculates irreducible representations of space groups. Space group irreps are labeled by k-vector star and a symbol for the little group representation. In this new version, thanks to the collaboration of H. Stokes, the assigned irrep labels coincide with the notation used in Cracknell-Davies-Miller-Love tables [1] and ISOTROPY. The program is also linked to KVEC for an automatic choice of the k-vector. The program is still under construction.

You have to introduce the space group number, you can give this number, if you know it, or you can choose it from the table with the space group numbers and symbols if you click on the button choose it. When you click on the botton next you will find a form where you have to introduce the k vector.
