Abstract

We define the projective symmetry group of a finite sequence of vectors (a frame) in a natural way as a group of permutations on the vectors (or their indices). This definition ensures that the projective symmetry group is the same for a frame and its complement. We give an algorithm for computing the projective symmetry group from a small set of projective invariants when the underlying field is a subfield of \mathbb{C} which is closed under conjugation. This algorithm is applied in a number of examples including equiangular lines (in particular SICs), MUBs, and harmonic frames.
