The purpose of this book is to explain why molecular structure can be determined by single-crystal diffraction of X rays. It is not an account of the practical procedural details, but rather an account of the underlying physical principles, and the kinds of experiments and methods of handling the experimental data that are used.

This book provides a clear and very broadly based introduction to crystallography, light, X-ray and electron diffraction - a knowledge which is essential to students in a wide range of scientific disciplines but which is otherwise generally covered in subject-specific and more mathematically detailed texts. The text is also designed to appeal to the more general reader since it shows, by historical and biographical references, how the subject has developed from the work and insights of successive generations of crystallographers and scientists. The book shows how an understanding of crystal structures, both inorganic and organic may be built up from simple ideas of atomic and molecular packing. Beginning with (two dimensional) examples of patterns and tilings, the concepts of lattices, symmetry point and space groups are developed. 'Penrose' tilings and quasiperiodic structures are also included. The reciprocal lattice and its importance in understanding the geometry of light, X-ray and electron diffraction patterns is explained in simple terms, leading to Fourier analysis in diffraction, crystal structure determination, image formation and the diffraction-limited resolution in these techniques. Practical X-ray and electron diffraction techniques and their applications are described. A recurring theme is the common principles: the techniques are not treated in isolation. The fourth edition has been revised throughout, and includes new sections on Fourier analysis, Patterson maps, direct methods, charge flipping, group theory in crystallography, and a new chapter on the description of physical properties of crystals by tensors (Chapter 14).

In der Kristallchemie und -physik spielen die Beziehungen zwischen den Symmetriegruppen (Raumgruppen) kristalliner Feststoffe eine besondere Rolle. In Teil 1 dieses Buches sind die mathematischen Hilfsmittel zusammengestellt: die Grundbegriffe der Kristallographie, insbesondere der Symmetrielehre, die Theorie der kristallographischen Gruppen und die Formalismen der hier gebrauchten kristallographischen Berechnungen. In Teil 2 des Buches wird die Anwendung auf Probleme der Kristallchemie aufgezeigt. Zahlreiche Beispiele illustrieren, wie man die kristallographische Gruppentheorie heranziehen kann, um Verwandtschaften zwischen Kristallstrukturen aufzuzeigen, Ordnung in die Unmenge der Kristallstrukturen zu bringen, mögliche Kristallstrukturtypen vorherzusagen, Phasenumwandlungen zu analysieren, das Phänomen der Domänen- und Zwillingsbildung in Kristallen zu verstehen und Fehler bei der Kristallstrukturanalyse zu vermeiden.
