Haiiy1 showed that the arrangement of identical particles in a three-dimensional

**periodic**array could account for this law of rational indices. A. L. Seeber2 ofFreiburg suggested in 1824 that the elementary building blocks of crystals were

The three other values of K are allowed for both the sine and cosine modes ,

giving a total of eight allowed modes for the eight particles . Thus the

boundary condition leads to one allowed mode per particle , exactly as for the

fixed ...

that we repeat a given Brillouin zone periodically through all of wavevector space

. To repeat a zone , we translate the zone by a reciprocal lattice vector .

**Periodic**Zone Scheme There are problems for which it is helpful to imaginethat we repeat a given Brillouin zone periodically through all of wavevector space

. To repeat a zone , we translate the zone by a reciprocal lattice vector .
