Ashcroft—Mermin 12.2 (a) We have so?) = "r7212? - M-l - 1'5 where we have taken the minimum energy to be zero and the minimum at the origin. This does not change the results.

(M‘lhz k3 = ‘sz ’ k3 = ‘sz and D = g — (M4)“ k3 — A(lcg)2 — 2Bkgk3 — C(k3)2 The area of the ellipse is A(e, k2) = 77D m which is linear in 6. Therefore we have m* _ fiaMech) _ 1 _ 27f 36 _ W Next we use (WI—1V1)“ = W17((M_1)M(M_I)yy ‘(M_1)W(M_1)W) (Mt. = det(MXAC — B2) from which the formula follows.

(which is the enumerator of p ) is The real part of the enumerator P1P2(P1 + P2) — RiHR2H(P1 + P2) + H2031 + R2)(p1R2 + P231) which is equal to P1P2(P1 + P2) + 1112(0le + P23?) In the same way, the imaginary part gives —p1p2H(R1 + R2) + (p1 + p2)H(R2p1 + R1p2) + H3R1R2(R1 + R2) which is H(R2p§ + R1p§)+ H3R1R2(R1 + R2) and this gives the correct result for R. (c) From the equation for the Hall coefficient we have Eli—moo R = % If the high field Hall coeflicient has neff = 0 this means that Elim R = 00 and hence R1 —— R2 = 0, compensating hands. This —>OO gives P : P1P2(P1+p2)--H2R21(P1+P2) : p1p2--H2R2] (P1--P2)2 (P1+P2) Problem 3. Ashcroft—Mermin 12.6 Take a single band and consider a state with mm R,t = 0) = eik'RzflFfif = 0) if we can show the result for this wave function, it will also hold for a linear combination. H(F+§)=—f—mW%5-W%5+U(F+R’)+eE-(F+R)=H(fl+eE-R since derivatives are invariant and the potential is periodic. Therefore .H(F+§)t .H(F)i _.e§.m woman = 6—1 n ¢(F+R,t = 0) = e-lTe z . eikfiwm = 0) which gives fl _ “77+ 1%, t) = e—[email protected]+iE~Re-i#¢(fit = 0) where we could move and break up exponents since only the one with H depends on position7 the other two are just numbers. Hence we have W+ R‘. t) = eWfifich t) which is the required result. In this case we are able to derive the result of the semi-classical equation of motion directly from quantum mechanics! ...
