Centrosymmetric matrix — In mathematics, especially in linear algebra and matrix theory, a centrosymmetric matrix is a matrix which is symmetric about its center. More precisely, an n × n matrix A = [ Ai,j ] is centrosymmetric when its entries satisfy Ai,j = An−i+1,n−j+1 … Wikipedia
Crystal system — Diamond crystal structure consists of face centered cubic lattice. In crystallography, the terms crystal system, crystal family, and lattice system each refer to one of several classes of space groups, lattices, point groups, or crystals.… … Wikipedia
