Aspects of symmetry cover a wide range of physical, chemistry, and biological topics: they include nonlinear optics, nanoparticles, gravitation, biopolymers, etc. Both microscopical and phenomenological aspects exist here. Particular attention will be devoted to phenomena that are forbidden by symmetry following the macroscopical approach and may be allowed following the microscopical theory. Particular attention will be devoted to incommensurate superstructures and other topics, where the generally adapted symmetry aspects will be significantly modified.
