    • Abstract


      Following the method of Bhagavantam and Pantulu8 the number of independent components of tensors up to 4th rank is derived for the magnetic classes. This method is extended by Lyubarskii1 to cases of tensors having intrinsic symmetry. The results cover all cases of tensors lacking intrinsic symmetry as well as of tensors having the symmetries of Table II, and are in agreement with previous results.5, 8
