Problem 2: Consider an infinitely long linear l—D lattice (lattice constant: a) with one s—
orbital per atom (assumed orthogonal) and having a site energy of , so that the Hamiltonian looks like 10/07/05 Impose periodic boundary conditions and assume a solution of the form (15” = ([50 eikna
to find the dispersion relation E(k). Problem 6: The E(kx,ky) relation for some solids is often written in the form
E = E0 — 2V (coskxa + coskya + 20!. coskxa cos kya) Where 0t is a dimensionless number. How would you choose the nearest neighbor and next nearest neighbor overlap matrix elements in a square lattice of side 'a' so as to correspond to this
dispersion relation ? 00‘
