Given the name of a Lattice class, get the lattice class itself.

get_order(shape, snake_winding[, priority])

Built the Lattice.order in (Snake-) C-Style for a given lattice shape.

get_order_grouped(shape, groups[, priority])

Variant of get_order(), grouping some sites of the unit cell.

Module description

Classes to define the lattice structure of a model.

The base class Lattice defines the general structure of a lattice, you can subclass this to define you own lattice. The SimpleLattice is a slight simplification for lattices with a single-site unit cell. Further, we have some predefined lattices, namely Chain, Ladder in 1D and Square, Triangular, Honeycomb, and Kagome in 2D.

The IrregularLattice provides a way to remove or add sites to an existing, regular lattice.

See also the Models and Details on the lattice geometry.

Further, an overview with plots of the predefined models is given in Overview predefined lattices
