Homework Help: Not sure how to title it tbh

  1. Apr 26, 2007 #1
    I have:

    [tex]\int d^3 \mathbf{q} d^3 \mathbf{q'} K_{ij} K_{ji} f(-\mathbf{q}+\mathbf{q'})f(-\mathbf{q}+\mathbf{q'})[/tex]

    and [tex]f(\mathbf{q})=\frac{i}{q_z}\int d^2 \mathbf{x} e^{i \mathbf{q_\perp} \cdot \mathbf{x}} [a e^{i q_z[H+h_2(\mathbf{x})]} - b e^{i q_z h_1(\mathbf{x})}][/tex]

    What does [tex]f(-\mathbf{q} + \mathbf{q'})[/tex] equal?

    x is real space and q is fourier space. I'm thinking I can simply substitute the q for -q + q' , but what about the integral over x and the x values? do i substitute x for -x + x' too? I can't see that turning out the way its supposed to...

    Any help would be much appreciated.
