1 Singularity in the density of states. 3, essen-tially the same problem, explains that this is called a “van Hove singularity”. This is true for solutions to any periodic system, follows from Bloch’s theorem and we will see it again below. Ashcroft and Mermin, Chapter 19 4. Charles Kittel, Introduction to Solid State Physics. Solutions will be available after the due dates. Textbook: Solid State Physics, by N.
