Consider an infinite, one-dimensional linear chain of dz2 orbitals separated at a distance a. Write an expression of the BLOCH FUNCTION that describes this chain.

2. Relevant equations

ψk=Ʃexp(ikna)χn

3. The attempt at a solution

I read this http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.198708461/pdf and from here I gt the idea that the Bloch function should just be Ʃexp(ikna) times the radial part of the dz2 wavefunction but I don't think this is correct. Could anyone please explain how I can do this I've already looked all over the web and books and couldn't find anything.

Thank You.
