Axial point groups: Rank 1, 2, 3 and 4 property tensor tables

Daniel B. Litvin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The form of a physical property tensor of a quasi-one-dimensional material such as a nanotube or a polymer is determined from the material's axial point group. Tables of the form of rank 1, 2, 3 and 4 property tensors are presented for a wide variety of magnetic and non-magnetic tensor types invariant under each point group in all 31 infinite series of axial point groups. An application of these tables is given in the prediction of the net polarization and magnetic-field-induced polarization in a one-dimensional longitudinal conical magnetic structure in multiferroic hexaferrites.
