Series Preface The long term aim of the Commission on Crystallographic Teaching in establishing this pamphlet programme is to produce a large collection of short statements each dealing with a specific topic at a specific level. The emphasis is on a particular teaching approach and there may well, in time, be pamphlets giving alternative teaching approaches to the same topic. It is not the function of the .Commission to decide on the 'best' approach but to make all available so that teachers can make their own selection. Similarly, in due course, we hope that the same topics will be covered at more than one level. The initial selection of ten pamphlets published together represents a sample of the various levels and approaches and it is hoped that it will stimulate many more people to contribute to this scheme. It does not take very long to write a short pampMet, but its value to someone teaching a topic for the first time can be very great. Each pamphlet is prefaced by a statement of aims, level, necessary background, etc. C. A. Taylor Editor for the Commission The financial assistance of UNESCO, ICSU and of the International Union of Crystallog- raphy in publishing the pamphlets is gratefully acknowledged.

Teaching Aims To use the ideas of vector and matrix calculus to introduce the concepts of symmetry operations and symmetry elements and to derive the crystal- lographic point groups on this basis. Level This is a fairly high level course which would be most appropriate to the later years of undergraduate study or to the early years of post- graduate research. It could be helpful in relating crystallography to other disciplines such as physical chemistry and physics provided that the mathematical background of the students is high enough.
