Abstract Body:

The development of software for new applications requires extensive testing.
Several methods for determining likely Bravais lattice types are already available.
In creating a new one, we realized that their publications seldom indicate
that extensive testing was done. Usually, a few examples of unit cells from
the literature are displayed. We decided that Sella, a new method we are developing,
should have the kind of testing that software engineering requires. Starting from
an example unit cell, in the space S6 a cloud of points was generated. The points
are designed to fall at a prescribed small distance from the example cell. The
perturbed unit cells are then reduced; the resulting reduced cloud should
show continuity and reasonable distances from their corresponding reduced cell.
