There are four miller indices (hklj) for the hexagonal lattice, the third being redudant:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

l=-(h+k) (1)

Given the basis vectors a1,a2,a3 I can certainly see that:

a3=-(a1+a2)

But how does this immidiatly lead me to the relation (1) between the miller indices?
