Topic: Glide reflection


In the News (Thu 23 Nov 17)

  
  Glide Reflection
Glide reflection is a composite transformation which is a translation followed by a reflection in line parallel to the direction of translation.
Reflection is isometry: a glide reflection preserves distances.
The importance of the glide reflection lies in the fact that it is one of the four isometries of the plane.

 Symmetry in Oriental Carpets
A glide reflection is a combination of a translation and a reflection.
Glide reflections are unique from the other three basic symmetries because they involve two steps.
The seven border groups are translation, horizontal reflection, vertical reflection, reflection and reflection, glide reflection, rotation, reflection and glide reflection.

 Glide reflection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In geometry, a glide reflection is a type of isometry of the Euclidean plane: the combination of a reflection in a line and a translation along that line.
Combining two equal glide reflections gives a pure translation with a translation vector that is twice that of the glide reflection, so the even powers of the glide reflection form a translation group.
If the translation vector of a glide reflection is itself an element of the translation group, then the corresponding glide reflection symmetry reduces to a combination of reflection symmetry and translational symmetry.

 Glide Reflection and other Combined Transformations
Glide Reflection is one of the four (translation, rotation, reflection and glide reflection) symmetrie transformations we use to classify the regular divisions of the plane.
In a way glide reflection is somewhat different from the other three, because it’s not a simple tranformation.
The shapes of the light and dark horseman are the same apart from the operation of reflection.

 Glide reflection (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab1.tamu.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In geometry, a glide reflection is a type of isometry of the Euclidean plane.
On the other hand the product of a reflection and a translation is usually not a reflection, but can produce a transformation with no everyday name: a glide reflection.
If one considers the effect of a reflection combined with any translation, it is a glide reflection with respect to a line parallel to the line of the reflection, as one sees by resolving the translation into components parallel and orthogonal to that line.

 Isometries As Products of Reflections   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The four Euclidean isometries, reflection, translation, rotation and glide reflection, can be expressed as compositions of reflections.
As glide reflections is a combination of translation and reflection we can see from the above discussion that a glide reflection can be expressed as the composition of three reflections.
The first two reflections compose the translation step of the glide reflection map, and the third reflection is the same reflection as the second step of the glide reflection map.

A glide reflection can be described by a glide mirror line together with a translation by a vector in the direction of this line.
The glide reflection then can also be thought of as reflection in the glide mirror line followed by this translation.

 Glide plane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In crystallography, a glide plane is symmetry operation describing how a reflection in a plane, followed by a translation parallel with that plane, may leave the crystal unchanged.
In geometry, a glide plane operation is a type of isometry of the Euclidean space: the combination of a reflection in a plane and a translation in that plane.
The glide plane operation in the strict sense and the pure reflection are two of the four kinds of indirect isometries in 3D.

A glide reflection (or glide) is a reflection in a line followed by a translation in a direction parallel to that line.
Note that glide reflections are really the most general form of an opposite symmetry.
A reflection could be considered as a glide where the translation happens to be trivial.

 Some Glide Reflection Facts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Let the glide transformation with invariant line m and glide vector AB be the transformation G that takes any point C to a point C'' defined as follows:  let C' be the reflection of C across m and C'' be the translation of C' by vector AB. 
Proposition: If G is a glide reflection, for any point C, the midpoint of the segment from C to G(C) is on the invariant line m.
However, knowing the 3 line reflections still leaves quite a bit of work to find the invariant line and the glide vector (Brown, problem 19, page 54 and class discussion).  If a transformation G is known to be a glide reflection, then the midpoint method above is one way to find this defining data directly.

 Transformation (mathematics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab1.tamu.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In order to reflect a planar figure one needs the "mirror" to be a line ("axis of reflection"), while for reflections in the three-dimensional space one would use a plane for a mirror.
Reflection sometimes is considered as a special case of inversion with infinite radius of the reference circle.
A glide reflection is a type of isometry of the Euclidean plane: the combination of a reflection in a line and a translation along that line.

In glide reflection, each successive element in the design in a reflection of the previous one.
The first reflection symmetry is a line joining corners B and C. Notice how the shape looks the same after the reflection--we could not tell that a reflection had been performed except that the labelling of the corners has changed.
The second reflection symmetry is a line joining corners A and D. These two reflection symmetries all the only reflection symmetries of the object.

 [No title]
Extending the previously mentioned result on reflections, it is possible to show that the composition of two non-parallel glide reflections is a rotation by twice their angle of intersection...
More specifically, everything follows from the easily proven fact that the composition of a reflection M and a half turn R at a distance d from M is a glide reflection G passing through R, perpendicular to M and of gliding vector of length 2d.
While the interactions between (glide) reflection axes and half turn centers that determine this number are best studied in the 'abstract' context of symmetry plans, it is more convenient here to start with a specific pg/pm/cm pattern in the vertical direction and see what the half turn creates out of it in the horizontal direction.

In general, would you expect to be able to rewrite the composition of two different glide reflections as a reflection, a rotation, a translation, or another glide reflection?
In the glide reflection, do you think it matters whether the translation is performed first, before the reflection, or whether the reflection is performed first, before the translation?

It may seem that it is redundant to introduce the idea of a glide reflection, since it is a combination of two of the other isometrics.
Note again that the phrase "horizontal reflection" is used merely as an abbreviation for "reflection in the central axis of the infinite band", and "vertical reflection" refers to reflection in a line perpendicular to the direction of the band.
For practice the reader may verify that the pattern of Figure 9a is of type pmg (reflections in vertical lines, and glide reflections in horizontal lines), while Figure 9b has type p4m, the same as an ordinary checkerboard.

Because the rigid motions require centers of rotation and axes of repetition or reflection for symmetry to be present.
If this wave equation remains identical after simultaneous reflection of all spatial coordinates of the particle through the origin of the coordinate system, then it is said to have even parity.
If such simultaneous reflection results in a wave equation that differs from the original wave equation only in sign, then the particle is said to have odd parity.
