11 Ascending Bärnighausen tree for G139 (2a,4e)  The structure type at ambient conditions was chosen as the parent structure type  The ascending Bärnighausen tree is constructed using MINSUP  The G139 (2a,4e) structure type is the “dead end” of the ascending Bärnighausen tree, i.e. the archetype structure  Displacive-type transitions from the G139 (2a,4e) structure type into the high-symmetry (high- temperature) phases are forbidden G123G221G225 G139 2a, 4e G139 (index 3,5,7,9)
