# Twin law

The *twin law* expresses the operation that generate a twin. It is indicated by the symbol of the twinning element of symmetry: [math] \bar 1[/math], [uvw] and (*hkl*) for the centre of symmetry, direction of the rotation axis and Miller indices of the mirror plane, in the order. Usually, instead of the single (*hkl*) plane, the symbol {*hkl*} is used to indicate all the planes equivalent for symmetry.
