Abstract

Latent symmetry of a component of a composite object is defined as that symmetry of a subunit of the component which is not a symmetry of the component but which is a symmetry of the composite. This is illustrated by a geometrical example. A group theoretical procedure is given to determine latent symmetry and is applied to examples.
