What exactly are "glide" and "rotational" symmetry in a method? Are
they, together with the usual palindromic symmetry and the symmetry of
a double method the only interesting symmetries a method can possess,
or are there others? Indeed, is the symmetry of a double method
something different, or is it perhaps a combination of the usual
palindromic symmetry with one of the others?
