Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A computational algorithm is described for the numerical evaluation of some lattice parameters such as density, thickness, dimensionless second moment (or quantizing constant), etc. By using this algorithm, previously unknown quantizing constants of some interesting lattices can be obtained.
