  Group analysis forbids band-crossing in 1D?

+ 3 like - 0 dislike

Group analysis forbids band-crossing in 1D in terms of conventional band theory. I read this in a good solid state physics book. But there's no explanation at all. Can anyone help on this?

I don't know whether the following explanation is relevant for your question:

Generally speaking, according to the von Neumann-Wigner theorem (no-crossing theorem), for a band structure, the band-crossing usually happens in 3D system. But there is also possibility for the so-called accidental degeneracy in low dimensions which may result from symmetry.
