Simple Monoclinic primitive vectors:

\[ \begin{array}{ccc} \mathbf{a}_1 & = & a \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} \\ \mathbf{a}_2 & = & b \, \mathbf{\hat{y}} \\ \mathbf{a}_3 & = & c \cos\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{x}} + c \sin\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{z}} \end{array} \]

Basis vectors:

\[ \begin{array}{ccccccc} & & \mbox{Lattice Coordinates} & & \mbox{Cartesian Coordinates} &\mbox{Wyckoff Position} & \mbox{Atom Type} \\ \mathbf{B}_{1} & =& x_{1} \, \mathbf{a}_{1} + \frac14 \, \mathbf{a}_{2} + z_{1} \, \mathbf{a}_{3}& =& \left(x_{1} \, a + z_{1} \, c \, \cos\beta\right) \, \mathbf{\hat{x}}+ \frac14 \, b \, \mathbf{\hat{y}}+ z_{1} \, c \, \sin\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{z}}& \left(2e\right) & \mbox{Ni} \\ \mathbf{B}_{2} & =& - x_{1} \, \mathbf{a}_{1} + \frac34 \, \mathbf{a}_{2} - z_{1} \, \mathbf{a}_{3}& =& - \left(x_{1} \, a + z_{1} \, c \, \cos\beta\right) \, \mathbf{\hat{x}}+ \frac34 \, b \, \mathbf{\hat{y}}- z_{1} \, c \, \sin\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{z}}& \left(2e\right) & \mbox{Ni} \\ \mathbf{B}_{3} & =& x_{2} \, \mathbf{a}_{1} + \frac14 \, \mathbf{a}_{2} + z_{2} \, \mathbf{a}_{3}& =& \left(x_{2} \, a + z_{2} \, c \, \cos\beta\right) \, \mathbf{\hat{x}}+ \frac14 \, b \, \mathbf{\hat{y}}+ z_{2} \, c \, \sin\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{z}}& \left(2e\right) & \mbox{Ti} \\ \mathbf{B}_{4} & =& - x_{2} \, \mathbf{a}_{1} + \frac34 \, \mathbf{a}_{2} - z_{2} \, \mathbf{a}_{3}& =& - \left(x_{2} \, a + z_{2} \, c \, \cos\beta\right) \, \mathbf{\hat{x}}+ \frac34 \, b \, \mathbf{\hat{y}}- z_{2} \, c \, \sin\beta \, \mathbf{\hat{z}}& \left(2e\right) & \mbox{Ti} \\ \end{array} \]
