**Note**, as in the case of the diamond structure, that the hep lattice is not a Bravaislattice, because the orientation of the environment of a point varies from layer to

layer along the c-axis.

**Note**also that, when viewed along the c-axis, the twotypes ...

To construct the spin Hamiltonian for a two-electron system,

individual electron spin operator satisfies Sf2 = \(\ + 1) = f , so that the total spin S

satisfies S2 = (S! + S2)2 = f + 2SX • S2. (32.17) Since S2 has the eigenvalue S(S
