Inverse Pole Figure

Inverse pole figures are two dimensional representations of orientations. To illustrate this we define a random orientation with trigonal crystal symmetry

Starting point is a fixed specimen direction r, e.g.,

Next the crystal direction corresponding to the specimen direction r according to the orientation r are computed

and ploted in a spherical projection

A shortcut for the above computations is the command
