Diffusion
Random walk process:
If each atom randomly jumps, we might have something that looks like this:
So even though the jumps are random, you get a net diffusion of mass away from

Following are five slides from Prof. Robinsons
structure class about HCP miller index.
For finding the HCP directions, the second
way(changing the 4axis index into 3axis
index) is recommended. It is also the way
