1 Decorated cubic lattices Base-centered cubic is a Bravais lattice generated by { a ˆx , a ( ˆx + ˆy ) / 2 , ˆ z } . Side-centered cubic is not a Bravais lattice since it contains the vectors a ( ˆx + ˆ z ) / 2 and a ( ˆy + ˆ z ) / 2 but not the sum a ( ˆx / 2 + ˆy / 2 + ˆ z ). It is generated by a simple cubic lattice with basis { 0 , a ( ˆx + ˆ z ) / 2 , a ( ˆy + ˆ z ) / 2 } . Edge-centered cubic is not a Bravais lattice since it contains the vectors a ˆx / 2 and a ˆy / 2 but not the sum a ( ˆx + ˆy ) / 2. It is generated by a simple cubic lattice with basis { 0 , a ˆx / 2 , a ˆy / 2 , a ˆ z / 2 } . 2 Skipping alternate lattice points n i are all even . Displacements in the lattice are generated by { 2 ˆx , 2 ˆy , 2 ˆ z } . This is a simple cubic lattice with side 2 containing the origin. n i are all odd . This is a simple cubic lattice with side 2 containing the point (1,1,1). i n i is even . For a given lattice point, either all three coordinates are even, or exactly 1 coordinate is even, with the other two odd. Points of the first type form a simple cubic lattice with side 2. Points of the second type lie in the face centers of this lattice, forming an FCC lattice with side 2. i n i is odd . Either all three coordinates are odd, or exactly one coordinate is odd, with the other two even. Points of the first type form a SC of side two, and together with the second set this is again an FCC with side 2.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
