In an introductory section, the symmetry properties of some of the higher rank polar tensors relating to nonlinear optical polarization are briefly enumerated. It is noted that linear magneto-electric polarizability has been experimentally measured and that the reported results are in conformity with the theory. Symmetry properties of the higher rank axial tensors relating to nonlinear magneto-electric effect are enumerated and it is suggested that such an effect is possible in some crystals in the anti-ferromagnetic state. In all these studies, methods developed earlier by the author have been used.
