I have a set of k-points, e.g. k1,k2,k3,k4. and they are equivalent by symmetry.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now I have calculated the momentum matrix element <i|p|j> at k1 point ONLY,

and then calculate the optical properties which, for example, depend on <i|p|j><j|p|i>

I have to make a summation on four k-points (k1,k2,k3,k4) for dk integration.

So, how to make this summation only on the basis of <i|p|j> of k1 point?

Can I simply do by multiplying <i|p|j> by the weight of k1 point? because these four k-points are equivalent.

If not, could you give me some references?

Any help will be appreciated.
