I am trying to do some calculation based on a k.p model of GaN proposed by S. Chuang [Phys. Rev. B, 54, 2491]. It is a 8 by 8 Kane model with basis functions:
The 8 by 8 Hamiltonian contain first order of k is
where ##{k_ \pm } = {k_x} \pm i{k_y}##
the reciprocal space and high symmetry points is pictures as [Phys. rev. B, 53, 10173]
My question is: How is the direction of kx and ky defined in the 8 by 8 Hamiltonian?
Put is in another way. If I want to draw a Ek curve along ##\Gamma \to M##, how do I express this direction in terms of kx and ky ?
Thanks very much, please help.
