Symmetries play an important role in the theory of the solid state. As will be developed in this Chapter, DFT calculations for crystalline materials are commonly performed for the irreducible part of the first Brillouin zone, an approach which relies on the use of translational and point group symmetries. Two central properties that result from a calculation in reciprocal space are the wave vector resolved energy spectra, the so called band structure, and the energy resolved density of states. For magnetic materials, atomic magnetic moment moments can be defined and calculated, as well as effective inter-atomic exchange interactions.

Keywords:   lattice system, space groups, Born-von Karman boundary condition, Bloch waves, band structure, density of states, Green function, multiscale dynamics
