C is the strength of the delta function. Inside the solid, the electron wavefunction must satisfy Schrödinger’s equation with a periodic potential U (x) = U (x + a), and the length of the solid is an integral multiple of the unit cell. Substituting Eq. 14) into Eq.

6, beyond the discussion of allowed bands separated by bandgaps. → Brillouin Zone: Eq. 25) does not have a unique solution. For every allowed energy that yields an LHS value within ±1 there will be correspondingly an infinite set of wavevectors k. For example, let us say a specific energy value leads to an LHS of +1. As a result, the wavevector calculated from cos ka = +1 yields infinite acceptable k-values due to the repeating nature of the trigonometric functions. It is often convenient to obtain a finite and unique (non-repeating) set of allowed E−k pairs.
