Nicks, Rachel ; Parry, Gareth P. (2012)

We consider distributions of dislocations in continuum models of crystals which are such that the corresponding dislocation density tensor relates to a particular class of solvable Lie group, and discrete structures which are embedded in these crystals. We provide a canonical form of these structures and, by finding the set of all generators of a corresponding discrete subgroup, we determine the ‘material’ symmetries that constrain appropriate strain energy functions.
