Additional Material for the YouTube channel “The Fascination of Crystals and Symmetry”

The course “The Fascination of Crystals and Symmetry” was carried out twice as a MOOC (“Massive Open Online Course”) at the iversity plattform.

We decided to make the course material permanent publicly available, a) by transfering the video lectures / screencasts to a YouTube channel and provide the slides and transcripts as PDFs on this accompanying website. Also some additional material like CIFs, VESTA files are provided together with some further reading materials and links.
