Additional Physical Format: Online version: Hall, Lowell H., Group theory and symmetry in chemistry. New York, McGraw-Hill [] (OCoLC) If you're interested in symmetry in crystallography, you'll need a different answer than for symmetry in particle physics. Or, you could be talking about how conservation of energy/momentum/angular momentum follow from symmetry laws in classical and quantum mechanics, which is a fact that requires almost no group theory! $\endgroup.
