Avery useful approach to both the design and analysis of crystal structures is the use of nets. Complicated structures can be reduced to simple networks to gain a better understanding of the way that the constituent components arrange themselves. It also provides a powerful way of controlling that arrangement and thus ultimately properties of the material overall.
