Other choices of the primitive vectors include, e.g., a 1 = a x , a 2 = a 2 ( x + y ) , a 3 = a z . (b) Sidecentered cubic: is NOT a Bravais lattice, since it contains a 2 ( x + z ) and a 2 ( y + z ), but not the sum a 2 ( x + y +2 z ). One representation of this structure with the smallest basis is a simple cubic (Bravais) lattice of side a with a threepoint basis , a 2 ( x + z ) , a 2 ( y + z ) . (c) Edgecentered cubic: is NOT a Bravais lattice, since it contains a 2 x and a 2 y , but not the sum a 2 ( x + y ). This structure can be described by a simple cubic lattice of side a with a fourpoint basis , a 2 x , a 2 y , a 2 z . A&M Chapter 4 Problem 3 See Fig. 4.18 in A&M for a picture of the diamond structure. Look at the triangle formed by the three points located at p 1 = , p 2 = a 4 ( x + y + z ), and p 3 = a 2 ( x + y ). The angle between the two vectors ( p 1 p 2 ) and ( p 3 p 2 ) is cos = ( p 1 p 2 ) ( p 3 p 2 )  (...
