Number of next-nearest and next-next-nearest neighbors in a SC lattice

  1. Feb 28, 2014 #1
    Unfortunately, my solids state physics textbook doesn't provide the numbers. However, I know the number of nearest neighbors in a SC structure is 6. If I'm not mistaken, the number of next-nearest-neighbors is 12 and the number of next-next-nearest neighbors is 8. Is that correct?
