Definition
A point configuration is the set of all points that are symmetrically equivalent to a given one with respect to a certain space group.
If X is the point under consideration and G is the space group, the point configuration is also known as the crystallographic orbit of X with respect to G.
Other terms used by different authors:
- regelmässiges Punktsystem
- regular system of points
- Punktkonfiguration
