For each cubic space group, one projection of the symmetry elements along [001] is given, Fig.[link]; for details of the diagrams, see Chapter 1.4[link] and Buerger (1956)[link]. For face-centred lattices F, only a quarter of the unit cell is shown; this is sufficient since the projected arrangement of the symmetry elements is translation-equivalent in the four quarters of an F cell. The three stereoscopic general-position diagrams in the lower part of the page are explained below.

Cubic space groups ([\hbox{\sf G}] = general-position stereodiagrams).

The cubic diagrams given in IT (1935)[link] were quite different from the ones used here. No drawings for cubic space groups were provided in IT (1952)[link].
