Problem 3: In class we have seen that an infinitely long linear 1-D lattice (lattice constant: a) with a Hamiltonian = has a dispersion relation E ( k ) = + 2 cos ka where − π < < + (1) Do the same problem using a unit cell of two atoms (instead of one) and show that ( ) = ± 2 cos where − /2 < < + /2 (2) Are (1) and (2) equivalent? Explain. <-- a -->...
