A topological approach to reconstructive solid-state transformations and its application for generation of new carbon allotropes

A novel approach is proposed for the description of possible reconstructive solid-state transformations, which is based on the analysis of topological properties of atomic periodic nets and relations between their subnets and supernets. This approach is applied to generate 72 new carbon allotropes from the initial experimentally proved[determined] crystalline carbon structures and found[known] four allotropes whose hardness is close to diamond.
