Molecular Symmetry and Group Theory |

In order to answer the workshop exercises, answers are required to be in a special format which differs slightly fom the standard group theory notation.

- When answers require a σ enter "s" (small case).
- When answers require subscripts or superscripts, just input the number i.e. input the answer as you would say it.
