A How does parity transformation affect Bloch states?

  1. Apr 16, 2018 at 1:29 PM #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.
