Linear (cylindrical) Groups

These groups are characterized by having a proper rotation axis C around which the symmetry is invariant to any rotation.

Famous quotes containing the word groups:

    As in political revolutions, so in paradigm choice—there is no standard higher than the assent of the relevant community. To discover how scientific revolutions are effected, we shall therefore have to examine not only the impact of nature and of logic, but also the techniques of persuasive argumentation effective within the quite special groups that constitute the community of scientists.
    Thomas S. Kuhn (b. 1922)
