A face 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 are integer numbers that must fulfill the following criteria

  • ,
  • the sum of must be, for instance, an even number.
