### How to know the symmetry (point group) of crystal field in a material?

As an example, Let's consider a material $Ba_{2}YMoO_{6}$,(ref:PRB 81,224409), the space group of this material is Fm3m, the crystal structure is shown below (https://journals.aps.org/prb/abstract/...
### Why are we even assuming $\alpha Gb^2$+$\alpha Gb^2$ on one case and again $\alpha G(2b)^2$ on the other case?
My point of interest is to know where the energy of two edge dislocation system comes from ($\alpha Gb^2$+$\alpha Gb^2$).It not really the formula that I am looking for but essentially why are we ...
I'm trying to get the solution of the Cahn-Hilliard equation in 1d with a certain mass $C$. We have two components, and let's assume we have the relation $c_1+c_2=1$.Hence we take only the variable \$c=...
