In Kittel's solid state text, problem 2.3, he says that the volume of the Brillouin zone is the same as a primitive parallelepiped in Fourier space. Somehow I can't see why this is true. Can someone help me see why this is true? Also, is the same relationship true between Wigner-Seitz cells and primitive parallelepiped in real space?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks
