Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 2)


To treat an atomic layer with more than one atom per unit cell (a composite layer) one may use a matrix inversion formalism, expressed in angular momentum space, applied to the subplanes constituting that composite layer [12], generalized [13] to include incidence of the plane waves k g ± for all beams g.
