Developped during the Master 1st year research project, this program calculates the electronic band structure of a carbon nanotube. The program asks for the chiral parameters (n,m) defining the nanotube, and output the data in a file that can be read thanks to Grace or Gnuplot.

The band structure calculation is done on the basis of a tight-binding description of the pz orbitals. All the details of this model can be found in the project manuscript (in French).
