Consider lattice pts A and A’ separated by distance, t . 2. Perform a rotation upon A to rotate by an angle, α . A new position, B is created from A’. 3. Perform the same rotation by an angle – α upon A’ to create a new position B’. Now B and B’ are separated by a distance, t’. Due to the translational symmetry of the lattice, t’ must be an integer multiple of t , or t’=mt where m =integer. 4. Therefore t’= mt= t - 2tcos( α ) = t(1-2cos( α )) m=1-2cos( α )| c o s ( α )| = |(1-m)/2|
