A body centered cubic lattice
  • Consider:
  1. a cubic simulation box whose sides are of length
  2. a number of lattice positions, given by , with being a positive integer
  • The positions are those given by:

where the indices of a given valid site must fulfill:

  • must be either all odd or all even.
