comment Is (rest) mass quantized?
Could mass not be considered an eigenvalue of the Dirac operator in the Dirac equation?

comment Formulation of Transformation optics using a Material Manifold
Well, the latter link is far more applicable to a material manifold. That one is not on geometric algebra per se but on EM propagation in arbitrary materials. They use differential forms extensively, but no mention of geometric algebra. I figured the geometric algebra formulation could--if nothing else--be useful for ease of notation.

comment How does Bloch's theorem generalize to a finite sized crystal?
Ok then, I guess that's all there is to it. I checked the first answer only because it was more directed to my question (rather than the comment.) I appreciate your answer too and voted it up.

comment How does Bloch's theorem generalize to a finite sized crystal?
I suppose I am mainly interested in what kind of how quasimomentum would be allowed in such a system. Would it vary with position on the lattice?

comment How does Bloch's theorem generalize to a finite sized crystal?
Then at what point does Bloch's theorem stop applying? How many unit cells is "enough" for Bloch's theorem to apply?
