Abstract

The aim of this work is to found a theory of crystal structure on the notions not of length and angle, but of number, the fundamental phenomenon involved being the patterns produced by X-rays falling on matter in the solid, or crystalline state. It is shown that some alloys of transition metals are a source of patterns complex and varied enough to enable gaps in their enumeration to be exposed by the rudiments of such a theory (Aboav, 1997, 1998).

Keywords : algebraic theory, crystal structure, space-filling polyhedral
