A How does parity transformation affect Bloch states?

  1. Apr 16, 2018 #1
    Hello!
    I want to know how does a parity transformation affect Bloch states! I always knew that parity takes the position vector to minus itself (in odd number of dimensions), but I have read that it also takes the Bloch wave vector to minus itself but I have not found a satisfactory proof of this.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    Plug and chug, write out a Bloch state vector and substitute....in my head it works out pretty quickly
