Full text of article: Russian language.

Abstract:
In presented paper the problem of determining the similarity measure of crystal lattices in three-dimensional space is considered. The description the developed method is presented. The algorithm is based on determining the six basic parameters of elementary cell for each of the comparable pair of lattices and calculating the corresponding metrics of similarity. By using this method, an experiment on mass comparison of the crystal lattices of all systems is carried out and the analysis of derived results is fulfilled.

Key words:
crystal lattice, Bravais cell, translational vectors, basic parameters of elementary cell, similarity measure.
