A simple procedure, based on the transformation properties of the nonlinear susceptibility tensors of different ranks referred to appropriate coordinate systems, is given for studying the selection rules and polarization characters in regard to all orders of harmonics. By this procedure, results covering both linearly and circularly polarized incident light for all the 32 crystal classes with some simplifying restrictions are obtained and listed in the paper. Attention is drawn to special features in each case. There is complete agreement with what has been reported earlier by Tang and Herbert Rabin for circularly polarized incident light.
