| | The description of electronic **states** in solids is similar in many respects to the description of normal modes for mass points on a string. |

| | In the free-electron approximation, the energy of a **state** is proportional to the square of k, the vector from the origin to the **state's** location in k-space. |

| | Brillouin zones containing one million cubes are defined for the sc, fcc, and bcc structures, and are scanned to generate a histogram with one hundred energy divisions. |
