I'm studying physics. My first principle is using open source in every possible/reasonable situation! In my daily business, I write all my documents with Latex with hardly any exception.

comment Expansion in solid spherical harmonics on the lattice
Do you think of some expansion as in real space Wannier functions? But unfortunately these functions can not be used explicitely as I remember... In addition you will need the interaction Hamiltonian to describe the scattering in the correct shape. Please be more specific what is scattered on the lattice sites!?

comment Historic derivation of Wien's law
@EmilioPisanty: What would be $f$ in your understanding? One has to assume of course also a force free and isotropic system for Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution too. It is derived from Boltzmann transport equation as you might know or see itp.phys.ethz.ch/education/lectures_hs12/StatPhys/… at chapter 2.4.

comment Finding the Electric Field (and other information, besides)
@EliMackenzie: Ok, I might have overestimated your skills. You maybe also want to have a look at Purcell's electricity and magnetism but there is no short explanation either. You have to collect the formulas from different sections there.

comment Historic derivation of Wien's law
My derivation is a different than the traditional. I thought you are interested in actual physics and such understanding. It uses the basic knowledge about classical Boltzmann statistics. I am not an expert of physical history. If you want to derive that too, you may do so but I don't do it today. Good night.
