Periodic Boundary Conditions

elemental cell of a 3d periodic structure

When computing eigenvalues, periodic boundary conditions for the electromagnetic field may be specified for all three cartesian directions simultaneously. The above field is the lowest mode in a 3D-periodic structure. The wave-vector is specified such, that all three components are k*a = 45 degs.
