Tables of the group theoretical classification of all possible two-dimensional lattice vibrations are presented, using the labeling of the irreducible representations of the two-dimensional space groups. As an example of their use, the group theoretical labeling of the phonon dispersion curves of methane physisorbed on graphite is given.
