# Kittel 8th ed. Errata

• p12 - Figure 14 caption - one of the (100) should be (100).
• p30 - Figure 6 - The phase factor under the outgoing beam should be e^(i k' . r) - prime is missing on k.
• p36 - text between eq (30) and eq (31) - "We have, using (28)," should be "We have, using (29),".
• p39 - equation (40) - under the sum, "j-1" should be "j=1".
• p42 - Equation (50) - the last "=" sign should be deleted; sin(Gr)/Gr is part of the integrand.
• p43 - Problem 1 - d(hkl) is not correct if the planes must intersect the crystal axes at lattice sites; d(hkl) should be multiplied by the least common multiple of (h,k,l). For example, in the sc lattice d(2,3,3) is 6a/sqrt(22), not a/sqrt(22).
• p58 - In Figure 6 the curve minimum should touch the horizontal line U(R)/ε = -1 at R/σ = 1.12.
• p61 - Figure 8 lower right corner - change "Cohesive energy" to "Lattice energy".
• p63 - Equation 19 top - p should be ρ (Greek letter rho).
• p73 - line 5 - Change "a=4.16 Angstroms" to "a=5.88 Angstroms".
• p98 - equation(21) the upper right matrix entry should be -C(1+e^{-ika}) minus sign missing in exponent.
• p104 - the minus sign between omega_0^2 and 1/2 sin^2 should be an equals sign; below the summation sign, p-1 should be p=1.
• p142 - equation 24 a - the closing bracket in the denominator should follow the T, not the 1: k_B T] + 1
• p258 - Appendices' page numbers should be H 665, I 667, J 671.
