Group-theoretical methods in the quantum physics of solids (spatial symmetry)

The purpose of the present paper is to present fundamental ideas of the application of group theoretical methods to quantum physics of solids in a form accessible to a wide circle of physicists. As yet there has not been in the Soviet literature any sufficiently systematic presentation of this problem. The paper covers theoretical material concerning spatial symmetry and is a logical extension of the paper of the authors concerning point symmetry.
