Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question. For sure the momentum representation used in solid state physics works for infinite lattices or periodic ones.

But when it comes to finite lattice, i.e. 100 sites, can the momentum representation be used? What are the errors? Where does this fail?

Thanks for discussions!
