I have a table of the characters of a set of wavefunctions for different points in reciprocal space and for different band indices (this is for a solid). For the case of a single irreducible ...
Suppose you know kx,ky,kz points along with the corresponding energies. Basically, you know about the 4-D E(k) dispersion. How you do then convert that data into the bandstructure plots you commonly ...
Does anyone know the difference and relation between $k\cdot p$ method and tight binding (TB) method?
Among the methods of calculating energy bands for crystals, first-principles method is the most accurate. Besides first principles, two commonly used modeling methods are the $k\cdot p$ method and ...
I've recently started studying the $k\cdot p$ method for describing electronic bandstructures near the centre of the Brillouin zone and I've been finding it hard to find any pedagogical references on ...
