I am using the einstein model and have an energy:

[tex]E_\nu=A + \sum_{i=1}^{2N} \hbar\omega n_i+\sum_{j=1}^{N} \hbarh\omega n_j[/tex]

where A is some constant.

Now, I need to build the partition function which I 'think' looks like

[tex]Q=\sum_{i=1}^{2N} e^{-\beta \hbar n_i}+\sum_{j=1}^N e^{-\beta \hbar n_j}[/tex]

...but I'm not too confident. Can anyone help me with the partition function please?
