An algorithmic method was presented for determining all domain configurations and their symmetries in domain average engineered structures. This method was applied to PZN-PT single crystals by determining the domain configurations of domain states which arise in a phase transition between point group symmetry = m3m and lower point group symmetry = 3m. All relationships among the fractional volumes were allowed under the criterion that the relationships do not lead to a domain configuration of a higher symmetry.
