Unformatted text preview: ~ r ) = X ~ G V ~ G exp( i ~ G ~ r ) (4) which can be written in terms of the ~ G as, V ( ~ r ) = X ~ G ~ G G 2 exp( i ~ G ~ r ) (5) with G 2 = ~ G ~ G . Hint: Consider the Poisson equation. c) Show that for a point charge at ~ r and its periodic images, that ~ G = 1 exp(-i ~ G~ r ) with = L 3 . d) Determine an expression for the total electrostatic energy density. Explain why ~ G =0 must be zero in order for the answer to be sensible. What does this imply for ( ~ r )? 1...
