Problem 1. Ashcroft—Mermin 12.2 (a) We have
so?) = @7212?  Ml  I? where we have taken the minimum energy to be zero and the minimum at
the origin. This does not change the results. The area A(e, k2) is the area inside the curve given by km and Icy obeying
g6 =(M—1)m 1936+ 2(M—1)my kmky +(M—1)yy 123+ 2 (M4)“ Icme + 2(M—1)yz kykz +(M—1)Zz kg We can write this in the form A(kw — W + 230% — text, — k2) + Cosy — k3) = D with
_ 71 _ 71 _ 71
and
(Rd—1).. (M‘ILZ
k3 = — (Me)... kz v ’“3 = _ (Ml)... k2
and
D = — (M4)“ kg — A(kg)2 — 23k:ng — C(kg)2
The area of the ellipse is A(e, k2) = 77D m
which is linear in 6. Therefore we have
m* _ ﬁaMech) _ 1
_ 2w Be _ W E
Next we use
(WI—1V1)“ = W17((M_1)M(M_I)yy ‘(M_1)W(M_1)W) (MLZ = det(MxAc — B2) from which the formula follows. (b) The density of states follows from
9(6) 2 ﬁg fd3k6(e — gym—1 .1?)
This can be rotated to principal axes
9(6) = so: fd3q6(e — @7qu D*1 q‘)
where the matrix D is diagonal and det(D) = det(M) We now transfer to scaled coordinates and obtain 9(a) = 4—71; fdgsx/det(D)6(e _ 71:82) = comparing with me = <m*>%Th;2 gives the required answer. det(D)#1/%g Problem 2. Ashcroft—Mermin 12.4 j’total = = E ﬁilE’

From

we ﬁnd

and therefore 1 P RH _
PLREHE —RH p _ 1 p1 R1H + 1 p2 R2H
'01—'RiH2 —R1H p1 P2+R2H2 —R2H p2
This leads to the equations
pLR2H2 : p§~R1§1H2 + pgﬁﬁgm R 2 R1 + R2

Or 1 _ p1+P2+iH(R1"R2) _
,0an — From this we get
p + iRH = which has the correct denominator.
(which is the enumerator of p ) is (91"102)2+1‘I2(RlJrR2)2 (P1+iR1 H) (P2+iR2 H) _ (Pr131 H) (P2+iR2 H)(P1+P2 —iH(Rl +R2)) (91+iR1 H)(P2 +iR2H) (Pl +P2 —iH(R1 "32»
(P1+P2)2+H2(R1”R2)2 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
lim R = ﬂ If the high ﬁeld Hall coeﬂicient has neff = 0 this means H—>oo R1+R2
that ﬁlim R = 00 and hence R1 —— R2 = 0, compensating hands. This

gives

p _ (P1P2)2 _ (P1+P2) Problem 3. Ashcroft—Mermin 12.6 Take a single band and consider a state with
«M 1%,]: = 0) = eik'RzﬂFﬁf = 0)
if we can show the result for this wave function, it will also hold for a linear combination. H(F+§)=—%ﬁ§3m+U(F+R)+eE(F+R)=H(F)+eER’ since derivatives are invariant and the potential is periodic. Therefore
.H(F+§)t .H(F)i _.e§.m wow 1%, t) = e1 5 W4 Rh: 2 0) = elTe ZTelk'Rwﬁ’J = 0) which gives ﬂ _ “77+ 1%, t) = e—i@+iE~Rei#¢(ﬁt = 0) where we could move and break up exponents since only the one with H

the semiclassical equation of motion directly from quantum mechanics! ...
