# Twin index

A twinning operation overlaps both the direct and reciprocal lattices of the individuals that form a twin; consequently, the nodes of the individual lattices are overlapped (restored) to some extent (twinning (effects of)). The reciprocal *n* of the fraction 1/*n* of (quasi)restored nodes is called *twin index*
