The Simplest Patterns of Interpenetrated Honeycomb Layers – Counter examples to the Minimal Transitivity Principle?

The paper calls attention to the most symmetric interpenetration patterns of honeycomb layers. To the best of my knowledge, such patterns remained unknown so far. In my contribution a rigorous derivation of such patterns is given that makes use of a new approach to interpenetrating nets. The results are presented in a broad context of structural chemistry and crystal engineering.
