Although it is possible to set up Brillouin zone calculations by following the instructions in this section, this is a difficult task requiring great care and attention to detail. An alternative, recommended for general use, is to carry out one or more of the following worked examples.
Polyethylene: An introduction to setting up and running Brillouin Zone calculations
Diamond: Types of diagrams and tables that can be generated.
Graphite: A hexagonal solid, typical of a common real solid.
