Computational derivation of antisymmetry and colored symmetry groups. (English)

Authors: Jablan Slavik V. Radovic Ljiljana.


Because of a very large number of multiple antisymmetry and colored symmetry groups that can be obtained from plane or space symmetry groups, computers are used for their derivation from the very beginning. In this paper are considered the positive and negative aspects of computer approaches to colored symmetry,the lack of the more precise classification of groups obtained, the possibilities for the improvement of existing methods, and illustrated by recent results - the complete derivation of Mackay groups from the 230 space symmetry groups. Some promising perspectives for the computational derivation of plane P-symmetry groups are announced.
